*** SURVEY: THE IDES OF JANUARY ***

>I posted this yesterday on the main messageboard. Now here's a chance for you turners to chime in from your own unique vantage point..

The "Ides of ..." surveys are your chance to share a few of your words of wisdom with our visitors and with the readers of Woodworker West magazine. Every two months, we post a question of interest to woodworkers, and you weigh in with your thoughtful replies. We edit the whole thing into a savory stew and send the results off to Ron Goldman out in LA, where he and his accomplished staff render it onto pages. We archive past columns here on WoodCentral, although I am woefully behind at the moment. Pardon me for that.

This month's question comes to us from none other than book reviewer and WoodCentral editorial assistant, Barb Siddiqui. I don't know what got Barb thinking about this topic, but here's the question ...

"If a friend or family member came to you wanting to begin woodworking,
how would you go about advising them to start? What advice would
you give a beginner about tools, shops, equipment and materials?"

Thanks for participating!
