Hello, everyone, Iggy here again (You’d think this blog would fall apart if I wasn’t here, right?). I just wanted to take the opportunity to do two very important things.
First, I want to give a big shout out to all of my dedicated fans and followers (Yes, Holley, this includes you). If it wasn’t for your support – and Tom’s not charging me rent – the whole Shop Monkey operation would come to a screeching halt. And, that screeching sound – it sends shivers up my spine. Yes, shivers. In Florida. In August. Even with all this fur.
Second, and probably most importantly, if you get a chance to pick up the October, 2011 edition, you can see my latest article smack dab in the middle of the magazine. OK, well, maybe not exactly in the middle, but it is between the front and back covers.
The article calls for board hoarders across the land to embrace their inner acquisitory selves and revel in their vast collections of lovely boards. Of course, if you are going to revel, you are going to have to follow a few simple tips on how to keep the collection from taking over your shop – and your life!
As always, if you manage to get beyond my witty, insightful writing, you’ll find the magazine chock full of plans, tips and other woodworking goodies you can apply in your shop. Kudos to the folks at Wood for not being afraid to fill the rest of the magazine with outstanding content!
Now, back to the shop for more fun. I hear Tom may TRY to finish this bookshelf sometime before Christmas… of 2016. This should be good for at least a few laughs.
