Welcome to Issue 2.01  ~  January 2015

From the Editor

We made it! Welcome to the New Year, and how exciting is that!

Here at WoodworkingWeb.com, we are kicking off 2015 with another woodworking Awards event (see below) and that should be fun. I'm sure we will see the gamut of creations: from the basic toy that invites creative thinking, to the complex that requires creative problem-solving skills. We will see fun, serious, big, little, for the young, for the old, and, most of all, we will see the love and joy that the creators have put into their creation! 

That's how we are starting the new year and that will only be the beginning. Big plans in store -  lots of intriguing ideas floating around, and, as always, focusing on you, the members, and how to best meet your needs and inspire you to cut, carve, glue, sand, and stain!

And what are your goals for 2015? I'd love to read about it ... your blog is waiting!

Bench- maybe a bit more than a bench
Created by Mike1950

"I had a perfectly good oak and red fir bench but got a great deal on an Emmert repro vise. Since I had the vise – Of course I needed a bench worthy of it. I get all these guitar reject big leaf maple blanks and had some walnut and hard maple for top. This is the result. I love making benchs."

Spline Jig
Created by kdc68

"I posted this jig on another woodworking site and it has been very popular. So thought I’d share it here as well.

I had been using a jig I cobbled together and I couldn’t have gotten rid of it soon enough. This is a pleasure to use."
