***SURVEY: THE IDES OF NOVEMBER***

Ellis Walentine
>Yes, campers, it is time again to trot out our bi-monthly survey, "The Ides of ... (in this case) November." As our veterans know, we conduct these pithy plebiscites every other month to take the pulse of the people on important and not so important but still interesting woodworking matters. Your answers are homogenized, whipped and pureed into a frothy mix that will appear in our column in the next issue of Woodworker West magazine.

This time around, I'm going to the well of our "not gettin' any younger" department to ask a question that is guaranteed to be relevant: How has your woodworking changed as you've gotten older? You might want to discuss how physical changes -- vision, strength, mobility, etc. -- have impacted your methods of work. Or you might want to talk about how your attitude has changed in relation to the kinds of projects that interest you, or the amount of patience you have for fussy detail, or a shift from idealism to pragmatism, or anything else that has occurred to you over the years that you have been working wood.

I'm really looking forward to some revealing and inspiring answers to this one... Have at it!

Thanks,
Ellis Walentine, Host
