Thanks and Giving

Two benevolent woodworkers recently sent me some fancy wood to play with. Thanks guys!

One woodworker is Ethan Sincox and the other wishes to remain anonymous.

The woods include spalted walnut, pearwood, satinwood (which smells exactly like coconut oil and pineapple—according to Ethan—and indeed it does!), rosewood, and bog oak.

One kindness begets another, so I'm giving away a table saw book, written by Paul Anthony, which was given to those of us who attended the Fine Woodworking Finishing Showdown.

Anyone can enter to win this book, even if you are from Siberia, Tasmania, or Nepal. Don't let your location stop you. If you win, I will gladly mail it to you.

To enter the drawing, just write your name in the comments section. 48 hours from the time this is posted, I'll ask my partner to pick a random number from the total number of entries. The corresponding number in the list of entrants wins the book.

I'm not having any more question-related giveaways—you guys are too clever!


I printed off 49 individual numbers and my partner pulled one out of a bowl. And the winner is
Number 5: Justin Tyson!!

Justin, please email me your name and address and I'll mail the book to you asap: goodwoodworkshop@comcast.net
