  • You've come a long way . . .

    I ordered the collector set as a Christmas present for myself. I received them yesterday and I must say what a difference a few years makes.

    The magazine has definitely evolved over the years and for the better. Not just the look of the magazine but the content also. Many more patterns in the newer magazines. Too many articles about shops and authors in the older ones, at least for my taste. I think had I found this magazine when it was just starting out I probably wouldn't have given it a second look. Shannon, you've done a wonderful job improving the magazine.

    I just wish I could locate copies of the magazines I'm missing. I guess I'll have to keep an eye on ebay but it seems that folks don't tend to part with these wonderful treasures.

    Thanks for a wonderful magazine and here's to hoping there are more issues every year (hint hint)

      Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

      Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

      My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

      I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
