Cutoffs

I've always had a problem calling my shop a "workshop." The dictionary defines a workshop as "an area, room, or establishment in which manual or industrial ivork is done." Well, they're not talking about my shop — I can't remember the last time I worked while I was there. It's just too enjoyable to call work. Sure, I can accomplish a lot in a day. Maybe build a project or two. But work? I don't think so.

A THEORY. I have a theory about this. I think it's an unspoken agreement between woodworkers. We call it a workshop so it sounds like a place where it's all work and no play. After all, if friends or family realized what a good time we were having, they'd wTant to join us. And this could disturb the solitude so many of us look forward to.

That's not to say an occasional visitor isn't welcome. It's always a pleasure to talk to a fellow enthusiast about "working" with wood. But for me, the best time in the shop is when I'm alone. There's nothing quite as comforting as the quiet "shushing" of a plane as it glides across a panel. Or that satisfying feel of a tight joint as it snaps together.

maintenance. Sometimes, I don't build anything. Instead, I spend time

making sure my tools are performing at their peak. Whether it's adjusting a favorite plane, or giving my table saw a good "once-over," it's very rewarding. And the tools ran smoother and with greater accuracy. (For an article on how to tune up your table saw, see page 6.)

special issue. With the amount of time most of us spend at a table saw, we decided to devote most of this issue to projects and techniques to help you get the most out of this "workhorse." Besides the tune-up article mentioned above, there's a knee switch that belongs in every shop (page 4), a mobile cabinet with some nifty features (page 16), and even a look at popular saw blades (page 24).

index. We've also been 'tuning up" things here at ShopNotes. We've just finished an index of projects and information for issues 1-23, and issues 1-100 of Woodsmith. The price of the index is^^ $4.95 and includes shipping and han-^P dling. To order, you can call us at 800-444-7002, fax us at 515-283-0447, or write to us at P.O. Box 842, Des Moines, IA 50304. We'll send it right out to you.
