9of course individuals will want to claim credit for what they do, but
none live in a vacuum. technology is cumulative, and when it reaches
critical mass type threshholds it makes quantum leaps. the individuals
involved are *almost* irrelevant.

I sold my Chinese fiddle yesterday and picked up some QS red
oak from the hardwood store today. $4.75/bf + $3.40/bf rift red.
I'll have to order QSW when I want it :( , but he doesn't force
a large purchase and is OK with small quantities. $5/bf
Now to find some good ammonia and make that small A&C entertainment

For one thing: Regular newsgroup contributors, unlike you.
What you don't seem to comprehend is that aside from the
entertainment value we get from seeing your arrogant posturing, you
have added nothing whatsoever to this group. In fact, it appears that
despite your stratospheric IQ, you have failed to grasp a very simple
concept: This is a newsgroup frequented by mostly recreational
woodworkers (note the presence of "rec" in the group name) who have
formed a community of sorts. We discuss everything from joinery,
properties of wood, tool techniques and design elements to sports,
fishing, adult beverages, etc.
In short, we're a bit like any gathering of guys at a bar or party.
And your entrance into the group is similar to someone barging into
the middle of a party uninvited and hollering, "hey, look at me ...
I'm smarter than you, and I don't care what you're talking about, you
should all discuss what interests me".
Now given that scenario, what kind of response would you really
Just say (tmPL) HTH.
Is it the right time to poll for a splinter group of
Back in the days of Paully Rad <doffs hat> fillyscoffical chats were de
rigueur; design, trade, the golden section/mean/string, Fibonacci ratios and
Roman design influences were not uncommon. Generally, we welcome any
discussion that *adds* to the understanding of our hobby. Certainly most
prefer it to some of the wildly off-beat topics that creep in from time to
time, and highbrow discussions are great - provided they are not conducted
in a monobrow manner.

Just for your information, Charlie, I am recreating.
Since I originated the thread, as I was free to do, it must be my
party. It's BYOB, Charlie...(Bring Your Own Brain)...and you didn't
have the good manners to do so. But, you are welcome to stay,
Chuckie...maybe somebody else will say something intelligent for you.

On the contrary, Chuck.
OB on topic (for D.A.): I first heard of the Living Bra as an
impressionable child, and had this cartoonish image of a
brassiere that went around chasing you.
Oh wait ...
I had a sneak around your site but couldn't see inside the box- you did
build an inside for it didn't you?
I have to agree with Larry, tres' nice. The fly tying station is beautiful
wood though, I don't fish but it makes me want to use it.
More'n one Chuck, more'n one.
I tried to build a small sewing cabinet spool holder on the weekend and
stuffed it up totally. It turned out to be firewood, my worst effort yet.
Measure twice they say, well, I did that - but why don't they say "get the
right spool" instead?
Better days are just ahead...
Damn, I got so busy with the outside that I totally forgot about
It's got two rows of chisel holders, which are nothing more than
some 4/4 oak with a series of vertical holes drilled and slots cut in
the front edge.
Hey, you don't have to fish to tie flies. :-) As an aside, SWMBO
saw the wood that I was using for the station and commented something to
the effect of, "Why are you using all that fancy stuff for nothing more
than a tool?".
Oh well, she still doesn't quite get it. :-) (But you obviously do.)
Oooops, that hurts. I dunno how sewing thread goes, but thankfully,
the flytying thread spools are pretty uniform.
So can you at least rationalize it as "practice"? :-}
Wow, that's way beyond the synthesis of my ganglion
perceptibilities...what website did you find that idea on, Chuckie?
By the way, why did ya use all that fancy wood stuff on that
fool...er, stool cabinet?

So I'm picky. ;) While I love a certain shepherd's work and aspire
to his level of expertise, I hold a -vastly- different concept of
contrast than he.
I don't recall actually liking that one. (Feel better now?)
Why dincha just steam bend it and make an oval chest? The compass
plane woulda fit just fine, and it would have been a reason to
go buy a cooper's rabbet plane (if you don't already have one),
which also would have fit right in. ;)

Yeah. I had to plonk Tawm once again since I don't want to listen
to any of the bay area crap he continues to argue with and quote.
It's to the point that anyone quoting bay spew is now plonked. I
wonder how many others at that level of disgust. <sigh>
Well, I've caught up on spring chores around here, got the garden
in and most of the drip irrigation in, so now I can get back to
the shop. First up is the pivoting sheet-goods storage rack. I need
to get them off the wood rack where they now lean. Then I'll get
back on that mantle scraping.

A "certain shepherd"? That went right over my head.
That's more like it, Lar. :-)
It wasn't much, just a dovetailed box with a sliding top:

Maybe one of these days I'll do just that. :-) First I need to
practice on bending something easy like ply.
Actually, I was referring more to our friend D.A., but I know what
you mean. I've gotten to the point where I just ignore the BAD stuff.

Sounds like ... work. So did you wind up using your bamboo fishing
