The recent thread on Paully Rad started me thinking that, unless someone
stumbles across him whilst Googling, they could miss some valuable
information. I'd like to suggest that we start our own little 'Hall of Fame'
and immortalise some valued contributors in the FAQ. For example:
The following Wreck members/contributors have provided consistently valued
information and are worthwhile searching for on the topics attributed to
Paul T. Radovanic (dec. 2002) - Finishing, Shellac
Cut and paste the following as a single entry in your browser:
What do you think, who else would you add?

I haven't been here nearly long enough to offer an opinion, but the
combined wisdom and help these, and other, folks have offered have made my
woodworking odessey much more enjoyable.
My sincere thanks to each.

Noons, if you'd like, I can host your site for you (FOC) until you're up and
running. I've a permanent IP and a redirect is easy enough to set up; ping
Good to see you pop up for a sanity check,
Thanks chief. The house is supposed to be ready
end of October. That means we should move in some time
in November (touch wood). If it doesn't happen, then
I'll need a site somewhere and will take up your offer.
Important? Narh, just a database designer with
a lot of crap to go through.
Hehehe! This is Australia we're talking about.
The hardest thing to do here is keep illegal migrants
away from our shores: everyone wants to move in.
hmmmmyeah, a few around. Mostly carving and measuring related.
I'm into a lot of small things now (no workshop) and some minor
carpentry to fix things aroud the rental places. Weirdest
job was to fix the water infiltration into the garage.
Turned out to be just rain water coming in via the front
door. A small bump of concrete across the entrance and
all was fine after that.
Ah well, I'll catch up soon.
I would add a couple names who were valued contributors years ago, but
seldom heard from anymore:
John Paquay http://home.insightbb.com/~jpaquay /
jim mcnamara - no website, unfortunately. Knows more about finishes
and finishing than anyone recently on the 'wreck'. Wish he would come

As much as I love Jums, I wouldn't say the ol' Minwhacker
was a finishing guru.
Yeah, I miss 'em all, too.

You've got the wrong Jim McNamara, the finishing guru signs:
He's posted a couple of time in the last two months. I hope his posts
become more frequent.

Well why didn't he SAY "Domingo Rose"? I grok the original
question better now. Thanks.
