Cool Links

Here are a couple of cool links that you might enjoy.
First, a video showing the results of tests concerning the effects of chipbreakers on planing. This is the kind of nerdy stuff that I love, not only is the information fascinating, but the visuals are hypnotic. If you are stuck in front of your computer, it will definitely give you a woodworking fix. Thanks to Pat Tipton for sending me this link!

Next, you might like to check out the blog that Caleb James is writing. He was a student of mine and during our time together, I was inspired by his talent and attitude. He is definitely one to watch.
His blog is http://kapeldesigns.blogspot.com

I have loads happening around here, especially getting prepared to teach next week at Marc Adams School in Indiana, I hope Greg remembers the Scotch this time.

Oh, I see you made your grocery list for next week. I'll be thirsty too because I've been drooling over these 23 inch wide clear elm seat blanks I sawed today. Best I have ever seen. Curtis will be happy.

Looking forward to you guys coming to the heartland! I'll bring you some Indiana goat cheese to add to your stash.

Pete,

I know I have said it to you personally but just want everyone to know that I, and I am sure others, appreciate your support of craftsmen that are taking up this profession. Thank you.

And who knew you had such a readership? I think my blog crashed temporarily from all the traffic. :)

Thanks, again!

Greg, It's a short list, as usual

John, we'll bring the crackers!

Caleb,
It's my pleasure, you've earned the attention, keep it up,
Pete
