Hand Tools
Phoenix?

The phoenix often serves as a symbol of renewal and rebirth. I think it is time for the rebirth of the Hand Tool forum.

There is a simple reason why posts here have dwindled - too few are making an effort to offer their woodworking adventures. As simple as that.

We need new members, younger members. The average age here is about 70-ish, and many have become passive observers. And worse, inclined to read and not offer observations or critique. As one who has posted here, I can say that the absence of feedback is terribly disheartening. Feedback does not need to be sweet and superficial - it is really appreciated when someone makes the effort to analyse and comment.

I have posted the same articles on both the Hand Tools and the Messages fori, and the number of hits and comments on the latter is hugely higher. This signifies that the Hand Toolers are bloody slack! 

Posts do not need to be profound. This is not a competition ... just friends getting together and sharing our hobby.

 

Regards from Perth

Derek
