This blog entry is an apology.
First: to those of you who are following this blog series, I’m sorry it has taken me so long to get to the next entry. It’s almost ready and I’ll try to post it soon. It’s a masterful piece of literature that will have you begging for more. Okay, well I think it will be informative.
Second: to my wife, who graciously took the time to read and critique several of my posts and entries and informed me that women like to be called by their name, not just “my wife.” Her name is Marianne. She’s wonderful, and I’m lucky to be able to (occasionally) call her my wife!
Third: to everyone who read my last blog entry on safety. My wi… er, Marianne pointed out that the last entry sounded arrogant and impersonal, and that I don’t always follow those safety rules myself. She gave a little tug on my sweatshirt hood drawstrings to illustrate her point. She’s right, of course. My idea with this blog series is to share information, not to lecture. I think safety is very important, and since this topic is aimed at those who are newer to jig making, I think a safety reminder is important. So, from this point forward, I will try to keep entries on this topic friendly, and I will renew my commitment to safety in my shop (I put the guard back on my table saw).
In my defense (and with tongue in cheek) ...
First: It’s the holidays and I’m busy – lay off!
Second: No one here knows your name is Marianne! They will have no idea who I’m talking about!
Third: So I sound pompous, do you think I want you to loose a finger?
