Mist in the Morning
As you might know, we do a fair amount of surveying around here. I like to know what is going on with our readers and what they might like to learn about or show an interest in.
In one of our most recent surveys, I learned that a relatively small number of woodworkers have spray equipment to apply finishes — hence they do not spray finishes. (You can see how clever I am here.)
It caused me to wonder why: Is it because it is an investment that can be avoided (the gear is not cheap)? Is it because it’s a skill that needs to be learned? Or is it something else entirely?
And that, eZine faithful, is where you come in. What’s up with this? How come you guys are not spray gun-gaga? Let me know, and as always, we will share your feedback here in the eZine.

In response to Rob’s mention of a beehive project, eZine readers buzz about bees.
