Thread: Safety
15/10/2010 12:47:01
Hi Richard, there is a note on the video page explaining the safety situation. Unfortunately it isn't possible to show every step of the process during filming. However, we do recommend that everyone read the equipment instructions supplied with they're woodworking equipment, take the necessary precautions and, of course, apply a healthy dose of common sense – which is crucial in most aspects of woodworking.
Thread: Coffee Table - Big Mistake!
09/07/2010 11:28:29
Hi Steve, and welcome back!
I'd just like to second what Mike has already said. You must have done most of the hard work when building the under-frame which, if I've got the right end of the stick, is still fine. The last thing you want to do is have to look at those errors when trying to relax in the evening! A new top sounds like the best idea for sure. 
Thread: Stayer dust extraction bags
25/05/2010 14:07:20
Hi Baz / Dennis. Thanks to you both for the info!
24/05/2010 12:53:02
Hi all, we've had a reader question via The Woodworker magazine regarding where to buy dust bags for a Stayer ASS35 extraction unit. Can anyone suggest a reliable source?
Thread: Album pop-up
09/05/2010 17:35:40
Hi all,
Believe it or not I have logged your concerns regarding the pop-up message. Our marketing person who deals with these issues has been on holiday this last week. She should be back in the office tomorrow so I would expect some kind of solution soon.

Hi all, your complaint is noted and I'll relay it to the powers that be...

Hi Ian, great to see you back. Hope everything goes well over the coming weeks...
Thread: New Video Series...
26/04/2010 14:14:22
Today we're launching a new video series on timber preparation with Ralph Laughton. The first two instalments, totalling over 20 minutes, in this four part series are live from today and showing in both high and low resolution versions – both free to magazine subscribers.
Click here for Part 1: Join Ralph as he talks through what to look out for when buying and selecting timber for use in furniture grade projects.
Click here for Part 2: Learn how to create face sides and edges using a combination of basic handtools – fundamental to the process of squaring up wood.
Look out for parts 3 and 4 on soon!
Other updates 
You may have noticed we have a new video icon – see thumbnail above. It's a little less garish than the previous version but should be visible enough to let you know which articles on the website contain video.
Missing episode 
Some of you will have noticed that episode 9 of Peter Dunsmore's box making series never actually made it onto the site! That is, until today. Initially it looked like an episode numbering typo but it turns out that there was an episode 9 – explaining how to make a sanding board – in existence all the time! Apologies for the mix up. You can view the elusive episode 9 by clicking here or by visiting and scrolling down the page.

Part 2 just added complete with low res player for slower internet connections.

Thread: dumbing down?
11/02/2010 20:31:46
Ok chaps, I'm now locking this thread. I've not seen a heated debate like this on GW for quite some time! Testament, I hope, to the friendly atmosphere we've managed to create here.
The last few posts have been very constructive and I totally agree that it's time to shake hands and start a fresh with a new thread. Codeye, I hope you'll stay around and add to the forum and gallery area. Please don't take this initial response to your first post as a reason not to stick around...
Thread: Follow on from Alan Holtham's shed door cock up!
10/02/2010 14:01:42
We all do it Ged! I still have scars on the bottom of my no. 5 1/2 from a similar experience. I give myself a hard time whenever I see them but I won't lap them out because they serve as a reminder to slow down and consider each job before plunging in...

Hi Ian, really sorry to hear your news. What ever you do, don't give up. Keep woodworking because where there's a will there's a way. Not sure how we can help but don't hesitate to ask if you think we can in any way. Moral support perhaps? You'll always have that here.
I really do hope things work out well for you, both in the short and long term.
Keep posting...
