Ploughing Through Hayward


We haven’t forgotten about “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years” book – it’s just so massive that everything takes a long time to do. I think we are in our seventh year of working on this book now.

As penance, I offer up this awesome drawing from Hayward on making grooves.

P.S. This is just a quick scan of the paper proof. Our real scans are much crisper.

    Just out of curiosity…. When scanning the source material, do you need to remove it from the binding to get a good, flat scan? Just wondering if there is a small element of destruction necessary to enable this new creation?

    If this is an indicator of the type of instruction found in “The Woodworker…”, we are in for a real treat one day.

    I just wrote a nice post about Mr. Hayaward. I was logged in using my Word Press account. I posted and got the error message I need to be logged in. Not the first time. Now, I’ll be gone!

    The fact that I learned two useful tips from one picture of what will likely be an epic tome of a book means there are likely to be many more. I don’t want to assume, but this makes me incredibly excited. Sounds like it will be very much worth the wait.

    Chris, I’m writing this to give you and John some extra info to help debug the login problem. This happens to me everytime I post on this site. I hit the post button. Get a message that says I must be logged in to comment. ( I logout every night). Hit the WordPress icon. Log in and it takes me back to the LAP site with the message below the comment box stating “Toolnut: You are commenting using my WordPress account. (Log Out / Change)”. Hit post and get the message that I must be logged in to comment at which point I must re-enter the http address for the blog, (just refreshing doesn’t work) select the post I wish to comment on. Re enter the text (I’ve gotten into the habit of selecting all of the text and copying it so all I have to do is paste it) hit post and everything works fine. FYI in terms of debugging, if I log into another WordPress site (Megan’s) it works fine and if I log into hers first and then come here I don’t have any problems posting. It’s just the first time I try to comment here. This happened a while back and then it worked fine and now has been happening for quite a while.
