Everyone Has One

Rob-Portrait351As a result of our last eZine, opinions were offered and heard through the medium of our survey. And I was surprised more than once. First off, you don’t really like the calendar (which is weird to me, because it is so timely on the web). Next, you really like: Free Plans, Q&A, Today’s Woodworker, Web Surfer’s Review and Tool Preview. Modesty (and its low popularity rating), keep me from speaking about how much you like this little editorial. Another point was also made … several times … you didn’t think much of how I phrased the survey questions. Several of you took the time to email and mention it (even though it was not one of the survey questions!)

All in all, your responses were very useful to me and I hope entertaining for you. We’ll have another survey soon, so keep your eyes pealed. Maybe next time I’ll have you write the questions!

Q & A

  • Finish for Cedar

    I am a novice woodworker who enjoys working with aromatic cedar. I would like to know the process or the finish that can be applied to keep the fresh sanded look.

  • Finishing Oak-faced Plywood

    Does it make a difference if the finish is water-based or oil-based? What about just building up the finish with polyurethane?

  • Is a Square Really Square?

    How can I tell if my squares are really 90 degrees square? I have a speed square, a try square and a construction square. Each have their own version of what is square and none of them are exactly the same.

  • New Blade for an Old Saw

    Hollow-ground planer blades work great, but finding a carbide blade that cuts smooth without splintering is not working out (and getting expensive) and blades for compound miter saws do not work well.
