Would be nice to allow people to see your profile instead of keeping it private, then Jim wont have that problem!

Hi Toothy & Sparky

thanks for your replys, it would be nice to know where people are located, they may be on your doorstep.

That's an intriguing idea - a site map of forum members! (Ben, are you reading this?)

There's one o UKW though sadly neglected but it shows the way so to speak. Google maps API ftw. Cheers Mike

I think it's a great idea. Not sure how much work it would involve to integrate into GW but I'll look into it.

Hi Ben

Since my earlier comment I have revisited the site and noticed that the location of some of the contributers is available in their profile.

This was all I was looking for at the time but OPJ's idea looks good

Toothy

There must be a bug as when I click on the name I get the following blank screen with this message across it.

"This member has chosen to keep their details private."

Sometimes it works with FireFox and not IE7 and then visa versa...

This has been an interesting read, certainly like the dovetail section &  the profile of Robin Nance.

well done guys!

I got my copy yesterday too.  An improvement on recent issues but, as indicated by Jon Bentman's editorial, still some way to go to get away from the Sunday supplement content.

I think that makes three in a row now for excellent issues! Nice to see Andy doing some real work for a change.... Great article though, I hadn't even heard of a double-rebate dovetail joint before.

Is Philly gonna start writing for the magazine again?

Looking forward to seeing the other changes you have in mind. I guess you've been in the seat long enough now, Jon, to have a better idea of what the readers want to see than when you first arrived. What's happened to Dave Roberts? (Not TRDR)

I'm not sure what all this talk of Sunday Supplement content refers to -does it mean stuff like the Robin Nance article, the recent stuff on the boa tbuilders ? Personally I think that sort of thing is far more interesting than the projects and the tool reviews, though obviously they have a place. It places this wood related thing we do into a cultural and historical picture which is why I read magazines and books. I find out how to do things by doing them, or by seeing that someone else has done something and trying to appropriate an idea, not really by copying a fold A - B schematic or set of instructions. Not sure that really conveys what I mean but there you go. Cheers Mike

That's why I still subscribe to Good Wood, Mike, because they are doing something 'different'. I'm with you - if I want step-by-step project walkthroughs then I'll buy a couple of books or spend some time on the internet.

Not that I'm implying you should drop the regular articles from Mike Jordan, Martin Aplin and others!

OPJ wrote (see)

Ah, well Olly, that's because it's called a double rabbeted dovetail as I said in the feature! Traditional UK boatbuilding terminology over americanism here I believe!

 cheers,

Andy

I haven't heard of either version of this joint!

Nor have I read this months Good Wood.....but I did read and enjoy the last one, and particularly liked the boatyard story and photos. I completely agree with every word Mike Riley says on the matter..........I generally do!!!.........perhaps if you could write my posts for me Mike I would have some more time to some work!

Mike
