I am using the same system I use to rate how sharp something is. I have 6 stages of sharpness. 0 – Broken (junk it) 1 – Dull (get to the grinder needs some serious work) 2 – Needs honing (needs some time on the stones) 3 – Strop it (it’ll work but could use a little touch up) 4 – Sharp (good to go and it’ll cut nicely) 5 – Wow – (scary sharp you could split hairs with something this sharp) Listen to the audio to learn how to win a free copy of “How to Make Workbenches & Shop Storage Solutions”.

Don't forget to comment on this post for a chance to win a copy  “Woodworking with the Router” was suggested to me for router month by Fox Chapel Publishing. This book is 370 plus pages of solid information on routers and using them properly and effectively. I think it is a good book for any woodworker that has or is planning on getting a router. Originally written over ten years ago this book has been revised and updated to be (in my opinion) even more complete. This version includes hundreds of large, rich photos and drawings in full color. It is a clearly written and comprehensive manual on routers. It is packed with techniques and tricks any woodworker can use.

Don't forget to comment on this post for a chance to win a copy I choose to review the book “Outdoor Furniture – Built to Last” from Fox Chapel Publishing because it seemed to fit well with the theme this month. Outdoor furniture has to be designed to stand up to the elements for years. When building outdoor furniture we need to account for the fact that it will get rained on, scorched by the sun, and dried out by the wind. With the right supplies, design, joinery, and hardware our furniture can be built to last, and this book can help. The 14 projects in this book include Chairs, Benches, Tables, Swings, Gliders, Planters and more. Step-by-step instructions include exploded diagrams, patterns, and illustrations of each project.

Don't forget to comment on this post for a chance to win a copy I choose my first book review with Fox Chapel Publishing to be an interview with Carole Rothman for a variety of reasons. I remember hearing Carole speak with the Splintered Board podcast awhile back, and being inspired to try it. Her enthusiasm and her presentation is what got me to buy my scrollsaw and ask for the book (Wooden Bowls from the Scrollsaw) for a birthday present. After trying a few things on my new / used scrollsaw and not being very good, I was reluctant to try something that I perceived as advanced. But, after going through the book it seemed pretty straight forward, and if you goof, you just end up with a thinner walled bowl. So, I decided to give it a try. My first bowl was a success and after making many since then I even gave a demonstration at my local guild show on how to make them. The amount of wood you need to make a scrollsaw bowl fits perfectly with the theme of Cut Offs and “Scrap wood” this month too. If you have a 5x5 chuck of wood or larger, you can make a bowl. It is a fun process too. Look for a video on making them later this month. Be sure to visit Carole’s blog for even more designs and ideas. I visit it regularly for inspiration, tips, and designs.
