After over 30 years of being a subscriber, and buying most of the early issues I could get my hands on, I finally let my subscription lapse last year. While looking for some reading material this week, I picked up a couple of the recent issues at the library, which is what I've been trying to do. My wife thinks that I know have read it all, before, but I'm just not finding much of interest in there recently. One article in an issue I picked up was how to cut a half-lap miter. It went on for six or seven pages. No offense to Steve or other hand-toolers, but the guy cut the whole thing by hand, then (even as he says in the article) does a lot of fine smoothing, trimming and fitting with a plane or chisel. Geeze. I would do this on my table saw with a miter gauge (or miter sliding table) and a tenoning jig and be done with it before he roughed it out. Some operations are more efficient with hand tools than setting up a power tool operation (and jigs!) but this ain't one of them.
