|Thread: Hello everyone, I'm Lindsay!|
Hi Lindsey wecome to the site there are a lot of good people on here who are more than willing to impart thier knowledge just ask and from my experience you will get a reply in a couple of hours if not minutes.
But first two Golden rules that are never ever broken 1. measure twice and cut once
2 always always keep your fingers behind the blade edge
I f ever you meet a woodworker with digits missing and they say you not a woodwrker untill youv'e lost one finger at least STAY WELL AWAY FROM THEM THEY'RE BLOODY FOOLS.
You will learn a hell of a lot through Goodwoodworking I think its the best wood mag out there as it caters for us all Another tip buy the most expensive and good quality tools you can afford cheep tools don't last and can be dangerous
Enjoy your woodworking its a great hobby.

|Thread: James Krenov|
His furnature had a bieutiful simplicity second only to the shakers but James let the grain do the talkinG and selling. Anybody who wants to get the feel of the man get and READ his book A CABINETMAKERS NOTEBOOK . Especialy read the chapter where he describes how and why he made his bent clock . Every serious woodworker should read it RIP JIM GED MEAGER
I have just heard the very sad news that the great man has died. I have read all his books from cover to cover what an inspiration they were I dont know if this man got grumpy or bad tempered but whenever I make a monumental cock-up in my shop and want to fly into a rage and toss it all though the window I think of Krenow and how I imagined the great man would have acted I alway got the idea he lived in a total peaceful enviroment almost in a permanent state of meditation about wood I'm probably living in a dream world. Please can I have a little or your harmony with our wonderful material we work God bless and keep you now Jim your in great company with SamMaloof Jim Kingshot and John Brown Oh how i would like to be a fly on he wall whe Jim an John Brown Meet up GED MEAGER

Be careful of over sanding I think you've lost some of the crispness of you detail by possibly rounding over when sanding Remember we sand the shapes we creat we dont create shapes by sanding.
|Thread: Spraying MDF|
Hi GavinI made my grandsons toy boxes, desks and chairs tried all sorts of finishes, Spray, brush paint etc all worked well buthe best tip I ever received for finishinf MDF was to paint it with policell wallpaper glue then lightly rub down befor undercoating It seals the stuff great then I just used ordinary canned spray enamel came up great still in use after 6 years hard knocks by the boys been touched up once or twice by my son
but hey ho what do you expect make the paste up to quite a wateryeasy brushing consistency . Good luck GED
