How about the history of wood stops here ?
Arguably the one thing more fiercely argued then the right way of woodworking seems to be ‘evolve’.
I for one would most certainly add ‘McDara’ to my list. 🙂
Everyone knows that sawbucks have been around forever. But, what I think McDara is subtley suggesting, is that today’s woodworkers really need more SAWBUCKS — the friendly corner store in Pitsboro, where locals can stop by early each morning to pick up a hot pot of glue. The simmering hide smells so good that many customers find themselves impulsively buying a half pound of freshly cut nails each visit. Other customers fastidiously resist the urge to let other people brew their glue, so they purchase the leftover chunks at a steep discount each evening. Saw handle blanks, hand cut saw screws, and file sets comprise the majority of non-glue sales at SAWBUCKS. But around the holidays, they also offer display cases of brand new dovetail saws from Lie Nielson and an assortment of saws from BAT (while supplies last, participating locations only). Let it be known that I am hereby registering the following trademarks with uncle sam:
– SAWBUCKS, The best glue for the best you.
– SAWBUCKS, Beware of cheap nails.
– SAWBUCKS, Sometimes the best way to connect joints is to get woodworkers together.
– SAWBUCKS, If your dovetail isn’t perfect, we’ll make it again. If your dovetail still isn’t perfect, you must not be at a real SAWBUCKS.
Jag tar hand om den. Jo, den föll mellan Jörns och min stol.
