With the discussion about adding some more "groups" I wanted to try out and see whether there is any interest in a woodworkers group . You know who you are sailor.
If its your first time, I promise to be gentle and I will certainly try to give you as much pleasure as my other wood forums have given me.

@farmerman,
I'm your foe on this, I think you just need to start a good thread, which this is.

You want the rest of us who don't subscribe to a woodworking area, including new folks who look here about pancakes or lawnmower widgets, to have to join an official group to participate about woodworking?

I'm lately from a big wood working area of California, and am remaining interested in it. Now you want to make it a door/chambered colony, not attracting anyone but those, say, with websites?

@ossobuco,
I havent seen any interest here for a woodworking group. So why are you trying to stomp on my (sob) dream ?(sob)

@farmerman,
Because I think woodworking interests a lot all of us. Or, at least, many.

@ossobuco,
Look, Ive tried several attempts at getting a wordworking thread going to no avail. A group, perhaps pulling in several of the thousands of non participants on A2K's roster, may be the ticket.
We have far more people than participants. I think they just sit around and watch. COurse, this thread is sinking in the west.

@farmerman,
I see your point, I think.

But for me to follow it, I'd have to sign in as woodworking, one of my interests.

@Intrepid,
You engaged in any woodworking projects? Im building several "Whaleback DVD shelves " to hang on either side of a fireplace hearth (The hearth sticks out in the room, with the chimneys actually inside the house masonary walls.(ITs an early building trick). SO the fireplace has two unused sides where I can hang these shelves and this will allow DVDs to be kept in one area and all are visible. Im using poplar and Ive milled it to about 5/8 thickness . The whaleback is copied from a colonial shelving set I saw at Shelbourne Museum up in Nova SCotia. The canadians like to just show bare wood and the colonial AMericans would never have had bare wood except on highboys or tables or blanket chests. So Ill be painting these shelves oon a faux layered paint that will be a dull greenish grey over a brick red which will show at customary wear spots.

@farmerman,
I have an interest in woodworking, but am not engaged in any interesting projects. If this thread takes off, I will at least read along.

@farmerman,
I sat on my roof, looked over venice roofs and the ocean, and carved a plank and ruined it with one blade swipe, late into the project. Learning process.

I'm all for woodworking here.

I just don't think it needs to be a homunculus colony.

I suppose I should show my mangled wood carving effort at a cat, but that'd take some scanning if it can fit in the scanner.

Well, Farmer's point is that we have an online place to ourselves.

I remember waiting 5o minutes before any one else showed up, many of the weeks. This is not a hobby. Sometimes the chat was fulgent, but I was a waiter to welcome and it was a dullard on my sunday afternoon.

What was good out of all that? talks with Hebba, and others.

@Rockhead,
My biskit jointer has seen minimal use. I like dovetails or dado/rabbet joints mostly.

@farmerman,
I am not familiar with the whaleback. I do like to use poplar for many projects and usually end up painting it. The last shelves that I made were for the kids bedrooms. I used oak with a natural stain in one room and painted pine in another. I routed the edges of the shelves and made fancy supports with routed edges for attachement to the walls.

Are your shelves anything like this?

I too like a 20 oz hammer. Although, I prefer it more for demolition and such rather than fine woodworking.
