    Dear all,

    I would first of all like to thank you all for all the contributions you have made on these forums and also for the wealth of information that has been amassed in a short period of time. Your questions, and answers, have for the most part been both mature and friendly. However I have two concerns which I would like us all to bear in mind and try to redress within our community.


    1, Please keep all topics on track. If one thread makes you think of something similar or unrelated but not directly pertinent to the very first post in the thread please start a new topic. This will help to keep the forum organised and easy to navigate.


    2, Please help this forum to stay the most friendly and inclusive there is. I would like to think that every thread on this site has something of value to learn from. Discussions that raise tempers and cause heated debate, rightly or wrongly, rarely do this. Broad topics such as those that compare use of machines and hand tools are an example of this. I personally feel that such topics accomplish little and little is learned in the process of these discussions. Please also remember for the most part, we are hand tool enthusiasts we can quickly start patting ourselves and each other on the back and forget the many things we have yet to learn and teach. Let’s avoid, wherever possible, starting debates that have predictable endings.


    I am certain that we will all be better off if we can take the above two points on board and carry on working wood.


    Best wishes,




    Message received and understood. Nice work Joseph 😉



    Thank you.

    Good idea. I have to work on part 1. Is there a way to bracket out and clearly mark comments to make them unsearchable while posting?

    I enjoy working wood in Germany.


    Amen to that !

    I think to what we have in common , what gathered us together , here.

    Mea culpa.

    Thanks , Joseph.


    Joseph good points, I have so enjoyed what you, Paul and staff have brought to the table. I am mostly into Hand Tools and prefer to perfect my skills with such.  The projects are fun and very useful as well as the techniques, like saw filing, dimensioning wood etc. have taught and helped me a great deal.

    Keep up the good work !
