Why do Get Woodworking Week?February 11th, 2013 at 7:22
Sure, Get Woodworking Week is over, but this e-mail came in over the weekend and I just had to share. Why hold Get Woodworking Week? Well, there’s the perfect reason…
I just wanted to write you and let you know how much I appreciate your efforts this week. You and everyone who participated in Get Woodworking Week have provided a semi-old man (53), and budding woodworker, with a wealth of information.
So much information, in fact, that it will take me at least several weeks to go through all of it. Why? Because when I click on one of your links, that leads to another link, which leads to another link, etc. It’s absolutely stunning how large the online woodworking community really is!
Because I work nights (11pm-7am), it’s really difficult to get actual shop time in. But what I’m doing right now is reading and studying…I’ve sorted my woodworking bookmarks into different categories and sub-categories so that when I do finally get the time in the shop and need help, I can go to a specific reference and find exactly what I need to know.
Thank you again for the hard work you put into organizing the online community this week. It’s very much appreciated!

And, of course, there would be a straggler in the articles. This one came in just under the gun!
