Toms Tip: Keeping splinters out of your yarn.

What’s on the Bench?
Marc is still plugging away on the Hall Frame, trying to balance building, filming, and photographing all at the same time! Matt is excited about a couple new tools he picked up from his Grandfather.

Around the Web:
ToolCritic.com Tools are classified by type and manufacturer, and for each category, 7 1/4 inch circular saws, for instance, there is a little mini article that tells you all about the saws. The user-generated reviews give honest assessments. Some tools get high praise, while others are flamed. And if you post five reviews, you get a free t-shirt.

What Marc got in the Mail:
A new buffing wheel for the 8″ grinder, a plastic drafting triangle, and a square template.

Voicemails:
Frank- Essential Hand Tools? And what grade of tools?
Roberto – Making a bed. Sheet goods that won’t break under lots of stress.
Dean – Recommendation for big router in his new router table and a laminate trimmer.
David – Using plywood, how much sanding do you do?

Toms Tip:
Keeping your jigs straight by writing info on the jig itself.

Editor’s Tip:
Learning about wood for free.
