Your WoodworkingWeb Gazette: Issue 3.02 - February 2016

February is all groundhogs and hearts! 

My twist on the February 2nd Groundhog's Day folklore, is that if he sees his shadow we get six more weeks of winter and if he doesn't, then it's only six more weeks until spring! Every year, that makes me chuckle and, well, my world is a better place. 

And on a woodworking-note, "how much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood"? And that is why Groundhog's Day is all about woodworking! 

As for Valentine's, well, that is about love and besides our soul-mate love, we all have our love of woodworking. We brought some wood home, yesterday, in the backseat of the car and, oh, the aroma. I LOVE that smell! 

And why do you love woodworking? Share the love here in this blog.

Created by Britboxmaker

Inspired by a memory of someone I met in my dim distant past, when I recently chanced across the track Stainsby Girls by Chris Rea (circa 1985). I fell in love with a Stainsby girl.

From You, Our Members

  • Interview With A Woodworker: This month MYLES shared his story with us
  • Integrity: "Many moons ago I had a job foreman tell me “build it like it was your own”. It may not seem like much but it spoke to his integrity and he was in essence telling me to hold on to mine." - John
  • Woodworking For Kids: "When it comes to sharing woodworking with my grandkids, I keep it simple. In fact, I really don’t care if they take a shine to woodworking, I would just rather they get the opportunity to be creative.
    When they come over for a visit, they don’t ask if they can do woodworking, they just ask, “Can we build?” - Todd Clippinger
