Thanks Nick..............I think

I'd like your definition of 'taking the pee' though

I don't think we/I do that at all.......we enjoy both gallery and members threads as we all learn, we have a laugh at members jokes but I cant think of a time we/I have taken the pee at anyone!

I can`t remember you taking the pee, though i will admit to having my tounge firmly in my cheek in a few threads.

As Andy said earlier, it would be a sterile forum without some humour.

I don`t think Mike thought for one minute  i would put a trailer on my roof rack with all that oak!!! He knows i haven`t got a trailer.

Always remember it takes 43 muscles to frown at someone who is annoying you, & only 4 to reach out & slap them!!!!!!!!!!!

I was greatly saddned to see the passing of John Brown I loved reading his articles they always made me smile Please repeat them. Althjough I never met the man and if I had I probably would have his boot imprint on my arse as I come from the Norm school of woodworking which JBhated I did learn quite a bit from him though and would love the see any article he wrote on welsh stick chair making as I would love to have a go

RIP JB from a loyal fan

Hi Folks..


Has  'The Woodworker' descended to the level of using 'Pocket-hole' Joinery, for making carcasses? I am surprised to find this tool/jig being given attention by any serious woodwork magazine. 

The first time I encountered pocket holes was on a cheap kitchen table my old Dad bought in the 1940's.  The top  (plywood) was held in place with screws in pockets. Quite ok, as the plywood top wouldn't move noticeably.

Now, I am far from a snob, but I prefer joints when building even a utility carcass and  just the humble dowel joint is superior to pocket-hole screws.

In case someone is going to say it's okay for me, because I know how to cut the joints, well yes, up to a point, I do. But that's only because I kept using them until I was proficient in cutting them. 

Pocket hole jigs? Were I to find a use for them, it would be easier for me to make an angled block to use as a throw-away jig, since I would use it so infrequently.

am almost crying here! I can remember when 'The Woodworker' was the benchmark for magazines. Heck; I can even remember when it was THE ONLY magazine!!!

Regarding Tormek, I like my India oil stone to much

Well Sparky, you don't have to throw out you oilstone, if you buy a Tormek grinder. Once you have the hollow-ground bevel, you can put the secondary bevel on with whatever honing stone you wish.
