Extra-Extra, Read all About It! Groundbreaking News from Milwaukee
Sometimes there is almost more going on than I can handle and today is one of those days. This eZine marks our very first “Sponsored” issue, brought to you by our old friends at Franklin International. We couldn’t be happier to have them as our first sponsor partner. Their story is told in our Tool Maker Insider department. And be sure to click on their advertisements found on this page.
But in addition to that, Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation has given the eZine a remarkable scoop. Their new lithium ion battery technology will not only revolutionize cordless woodworking tools, but will likely affect a much wider world than our own. But you will read about it here first. (Oh boy, do we love scoops!) Check out the Tool Preview for the groundbreaking story.
Hold on, I’m not done! This is the long awaited eZine where we let you know who the winner of our WJ eZine poetry contest is. (Maybe you should sit down; the excitement may overwhelm you.) Go to our Readers Response page for more verse related content.
So go ahead, read and enjoy. So much fun in one electronic magazine!

I want to set up a shop in a 48 by 24 barn loft, but I am so accustomed to reading prints, I seem to have no imagination. Could you please direct me to a good shop layout plan which I can study?
If I use plans from a book or other source, and the book states that these are not to be made for profit, and I alter the plans, does this still apply?
I’ve had some difficulty with bleeding on pine. I’ve tried varnish-based primers, but none seem to do the trick. Is there a product or technique that you could recommend?
I suspect it is easier to find a needle in a haystack than to find a woodworker who does not use Titebond. After all, Titebond has been fulfilling our gluing needs since 1952.
Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation announces the introduction of V28 lithium ion battery technology after nine years of research and development.
Our poetry contest turned out to be a big success. When all was said and done, we had 25 pages worth of woodworking poems!
Carol Reed, also known as “The Router Lady,” is a highly accomplished woodworker, teacher, and author who grew up in an era where, as she says, “women did not do that sort of thing.”
