I read a Woodsmith newsletter the other day where they suggested a small organizer for use on your table saw fence.

Off-Topic: Social Networking

09-18-2008 08:24 PM by ahpeditor | 8 comments »

I’m a woodworker. I’m also an editor working for a company that publishes woodworking content. So I want to start with this disclaimer. My personal posts to the website have nothing whatsoever to do with my employer. All comments are my own. Period. Now the important stuff. My first post isn’t about woodworking. It happens to be about social networking and sites like this and how they can help good, worthy causes. Let me explain. This morning when I logged onto my comp...
