  • Great article Carole.

    we got the magazine yesterday. My opinion the best paragraphs were Final Steps. Too many times we see beautiful work at shows and Bruce runs his hands over it and it is rough, glue marks and poorly sanded. He often says “Why would someone take all that time to make a beautiful piece and ruin it by poor finishing.” SLRA is really tough when it comes to finishing. After all, that’s what people see, the final result and it better be perfect!! After all, woodworking is a work of art. And you are a great artist and teacher.

    Thanks Betty. I agree with Bruce completely. It's easy to get impatient at the end of a project, but especially if something is going out for sale, or will appear in print, who wants to see a badly glued seam or glue spots staring back at them! I usually take a break before applying final coats just to have one last look. Amazing what you can miss!

      I agree wholeheartedly! It not only needs to feel good but needs to look good. That really comes into play on furniture.
      I like to take pictures and look at them before finishing, especially with intarsia.

        Interesting idea , Rolf, since the camera sees what is really there, and we just see what we think/hope/expect is there.

        The tile top kitchen table that Joe and I built with love and care has planer marks that we didn’t see until years after we finished the project. Now we every piece of wood we use gets “SuperMaxed” before we work on it.

          After holding one of Bruce's pepper mills, I can understand his obsession with good finishes.

            Thanks Jim. I’ll tell him what you said - maybe.

              I was using my older Colewood Super pro II yesterday and I could not control the temperature. As soon as I turned it on the tip went to the max. I opened it up to have a look.

              It seems that new members don't present themselves in the new members section. If anyone spots a new member encourage them to introduce themselves in the new member section.

              I will send Kaylee a note to see who is overseeing the forum.

              As you know, we lost a ton of folks during the time the board was being redone and a lot of them ended up at the Village and have never looked back.
              As far as updates to the software, I am with Scott on having no clue. I do wish some of the old timers would check in from time to time, even...
