Roy himself jokes about it... His Y2K Tool Kit was in fact a small first aid
kit. The contents include aspirin, alcohol wipes, iodine ointment, adhesive
bandages... I just checked and all the contents in mine are out of date...
I reposted some photos to ABPW... did it back in 2005 but they are probably
This first-aid kit resides inside a hand-cut dovetailed box along with
things like a Norm Abram autographed biscuit, L-N balsa wood glider, and
other oddities I've acquired over the years... I knew Roy at Colonial
Williamsburg when I worked there in the mid-80s and have encountered him
occasionally over the years. For example, he participated in my club's
woodworking show and also did a special program with us. He is fun to be
around... funny but serious about what he is doing. The Y2K Tool Kit is a
nice reminder of good times.
Beer anywhere around sharp, spinning, machinery isn't a good idea. No
beer, for me, anytime. Paper towels aren't going to cut it in my
shop, anyway - more like a selection of tourniquets (blood thinners).

On a whim, I grabbed all headers for the group via Easynews and got fills back
to August 2008. My archive on this computer goes back to 2004, but I did not
save everything. I don't have your Y2K posts from 2005, but did save your
series of veneering posts. While going through the posts I found lots of names
sorely missed in the group today.
Somewhere in the house on one of my old backup drives I have files from as far
back as 1997, perhaps even 1996, but it would take a lot of digging to find
them. I might have your Y2K backed up there.
Lee, it's "The Woodwright's Shop" (http://www.pbs.org/wws /) and without a
doubt is it a must-see.
You might not learn what not to do though. Last week I smiled when close to
the end of the show he finally noticed the cut I'd been watching since
halfway through. "Look at that; I've cut myself again." He seemed annoyed,
as if he thought he was on a roll for a new record (an entire show without
cutting himself), and missed it again.
