Can't say much more, I know a lot of us "met" over there. They just announced they are closing the doors. My own opinion is that they did a lot of things that led to the demise of what was the first forum I had joined, but that's just my opinion.
This past week my local woodworker’s guild had the opportunity to visit Woodsmith magazine and Wood magazine studies, both in Des Moines, IA. At Woodsmith, our host was Logan Wittmer, assoc. editor. Phil Huber, multimedia editor, also spent much time with us when we toured their video studio. While we were at the Wood magazine facilities, we were hosted by Sr. Editor, David Campbell. We were able to see their video and photo studios, product work shops along with many of the past and future edition projects. The day ended with a visit to the Des Moines Woodsmith store. This store is large and has many tools on display along with having large lumber and finishes departments.

Picked up a 408(I think is same as Stanley #4 ) Sargent hand plane that was clean, sharp and ready to go for $10.00. How bad did I do? My thinking is to sell all my Stanley Baileys and Baileys and use the lesser knowns for my work. I have some others like Dunlop, Craftsman, Buck Brothers, etc. I can pick up Stanley knockoffs with no name, and if it fits my hand, is well made, and is in good shape, I can always do all right. What do you say about my theory? Also, I turned down Wood Magazine's last offer because they shut down our community forum. I would not be surprised if they quit publishing it in the next few years if as many people are mad at them as I think they are. I was going to return their offer with this explanation as to why I decided to drop them after more than 20 years of subscriptions.
;Got this today from WOOD Magazine. I'm not a big fan of reclaimed wood (prefer something a little more formal) but if you're ever faced with working with it here are some techniques. Mostly what to do with those cut edges without patina. And remember: * A technique is a trick used more than once -- Georg Poyla * Onions have layers, Ogres have layers. Finish has layers, -- Shrek (well 2/3 of it) http://www.woodmagazine.com/woodworking-how-to/finishes-finishing/finishing-reclaimed-lumber
I just finished this one up today. It started out as a wine rack plan in Wood magazine, but I left out the strips that keep the bottles from rolling and just going to use it as a book shelf. Last week I also got the ramp built on the deck I started last fall. I still need to put a railing around it, but I really don't want to. I'm liking the way it is now, and it's only about 22" high, but I know the insurance company is going to want it.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
