News from the Woodworking World
Lee Valley world domination continues as they bought the Hock Tool Co and Beall Tools. Really great to see both of these companies being able to continue offering their products under the Lee Valley/Veritas umbrella.
Pat writes in with his thoughts on bad plywood from the Architectural Millwork industry. He says to not use it at all and rely on MDF and particle board with veneer faces.
What’s On the Dining Table

- Alex started woodworking full time and gets funny questions about his “little” project since apparently woodworking isn’t a real job.
- Ryan has a question about using undermount drawer slides in solid wood.
- Joe asks what we look at when examining someone else’s work. What are the details that makes a great piece.
