Today, I just completed another woodworking tribute video. This time, I looked at the discovery and harvest of the Mahogany Trees in the 18th Century from the Caribbean to the Western World. The video gives praise to Jonathan Card and his wood-cutting crew. It is also a celebration of Reggae music. You can find it at

Tom,

I learn something new (most of the time, LOL) when I watch your videos. You are the Ken Burns of woodworking!
