Bending Fun

I thought you all might like to see a fun, short video Roy Underhill and I did after we filmed a TV show last week:

Bentwood Firewood Carrier FailHappy Woodwright Wednesday! Who’s ready for some fresh video? It’s blazing hot out there, so why not get a jump on winter by learning the secret to building a bentwood firewood carrier, successfully, with Roy and Elia Bizzarri. #TensionFailure #CompressionFailure “Failures, repeated failures, are finger posts on the road to achievement.

Survey Results

Thanks for all the feedback to the survey. I got quite a few responses and it was very informative.

Not surprisingly  ‘Chairmaking How-To’ was everyone’s favorite topic.  Almost as popular was ‘Tools & Supplies for Sale’.  I was surprised ‘Finishing How-To’, ‘Chairmaking Videos’ and ‘Chair Stories’ were all about the same, and statistically not very far behind the leading two topics.  ‘Chairs For Sale’  was obviously the least favorite category, but I was quite surprised that 20%  gave it five stars. Maybe I’ll post a chair and see if anything happens.

I should post more often was the most common comment.  This I will attempt to do!  I also got lots of great ideas for post topics and will try to work on themn soon.

Many thanks for all the great suggestions!
