After all the comotion has died down and the Soul Crushing devestation has been
mostly swept out of the way I still long
for the Inspiration I get from the ShopNotes collection more than the tools,
Toys and Jigs that were made from those
Brittle Yellowed pages.
Nortwest florida (Pensacola) is the kind of Third World Country that it is still
necessary to have to use mail order for
most things woodwork related.
After 9 years of building Cabinetry here I have 90% repeat business..... all of
There is so much work now that a breather is cherished when it can be had and in
those moments when I can excape from
the din of the phone and fax commiserating with and plotting the new cabinetry
for my customers I find it so nice to
skip through the pages of ShopNotes and I am still missing many.
It saddens me that I can not just purchase reprints of the entire collection so
I am here looking for access to Issues;
1, 3, 5, 7, 8 - 10, 21, 22, 24, 25, 35, 36, 42 - 46, 49 - 52, 54, and Lastly 58.
In a larger city that may have been influenced bu Carnege I suppose there are
such things as Librarys or Used/New
Bookstores that would stock or have available these cherishable tomes, but I do
not know how far I would have to go to
find any of these.
I am not very picky,... anymore
