Too Much of a Good Thing?
If you’re reading this week’s eZine on the actual day that it’s issued, you’ll be reading it on Valentine’s Day. The day of love for reading about the hobby you love: how cool is that?
I love talking about woodworking with all of you – in fact I’m still reading all of your responses to my query last time about how you got started (I’ll share some stories soon.) And, in the next week or so, I’ll have the chance to engage in actual live conversations with some of you!
If you’re hanging out at home on Sunday night, Feb. 26th, step on over to your computer and join me for a live, online chat about woodworking’s past and future.
And, if you haven’t overdosed on me by then, and you live in the vicinity of Schaumburg, Illinois, come on down to the Rockler Woodworking and Hardware Store on Thursday, February 23rd! You’ll see me, live and in the flesh, doing a demo on tapering legs on a jointer from 4 to 7 p.m.
Beware, though: there’s only space enough for so many people at either of these events – I just can’t type fast enough to chat with all of you at once – so get there early (and type slowly)!

I’m refinishing a table with lots of putty-filled holes, and they are coming out much lighter after staining. How can I make them match?
It would be fair to say that Tony Branham’s company makes watching television a moving experience and lifts it out of the depths.
Our last issue raised the question “Do you de-tension your band saw when it is not in use?” and we promised to share the results of this highly informal survey in this issue.
Upon opening the heavy-duty carrying case of the PowerMaxx, a woodworker is greeted with a shiny, ergonomically advanced, lightweight cordless drill driver.
Inman operates a full-service furniture restoration company along with his wife, Joyce. By rights, that should fill his time, but as it turns out, it only accounts for part of it.
