Subject:
I am bewildered by some of your repsonses

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Did I say anything not factually correct? If so, lets discuss what. If not, what's the fuss about?

Expect more "unnecessaries" when they are called for. If those that made the effort to enhance a vice, that in itself is unnecessary, took offense at my posts I will clarify. Nothing I posted was directed to you all. I don't care how you spend your time, nor mind that you share how you spend your time.

So what do I care about? What was my motivation for posting "unnecessary"? It was assuredly not to criticize how others spend their time. Again, I don't care. What I do care about are those woodworkers that are highly motivated to build furniture and haven't settled on exactly how they are going to go about it. These people are the audience for my posts. I hope to offer them advice that I have found useful or that I have seen other successful furniture builders employ. Period. I'm not getting paid (though I have on occasion paid a lot for what I have learned) and I am not using woodworking to burnish my place in the world.

The proof is in the pudding. We offer alternatives. The folks actually building stuff will soon figure out what of the alternatives works best for them. I'm ambivalent whether my advice is found best for each particular situation. I hope you won't see me getting my shorts in a knot if someone says there is a better than how I advise how to do something.
