WOW , thanks Jim and everyone.. here is my thought, lI get alot of emails about basic stuff , and from all ages… so we decided to take a leap and do this show, because of the pay show, we have the players and video capability , so thats not an issue as well we have enough on you tube they will allow us a full 30 min , we have no sponsors, no advertising, nothing, just us woodworkers where the entire agenda is to help all of us, sort of “just the facts , down and dirty”... but I really need yout thoughts as well we need a good name.. the nice part of this also is we can film it , and here on LJ’s or where ever we can discuss it, alternatives.. and all of us together we can learn, we have several folks who also will be joing us, and maybe some of you , remember this isnt about any “stars”, celebrity woodworkers.. its just us… as simple as lets get the agenda figured out… thanks to all

Safety, safety, safety. As I progress through my own woodworking challenges, I have been made painfully aware of the inherent dangers in doing things the wrong way. You can’t reiterate enough about staying out of the line of fire on a tablesaw, or using jigs to hold your work (especially when forming curves) on a router, or keeping your hands and body away from the business end of a sharp chisel, for example. These tools can all perform magic, but the newbie has no real concept of how to use them safely.

I think safety and basic milling procedures would be good topics.

Also, which tools to buy in which order would also be valuable. Plus what to look for in a tool.

An example would be, my son and daughter in law are sort of interested in a table saw. They don’t want a full sized contractors say as their work space is small and so want something portable so they can haul it to their back yard to work. What are the important characteristics for them.

I am sure there are a lot of others interested in topics like this.

I spent most of my 20 + years in woodworking learning through the trial and error approach and a little help from norm. But I never had some one to ask how to do any particular woodworking operation until I came across Charles on You tube I think 3+ years ago and only was knowledgeable about every aspect of woodworking he was and is willing to help others.

This is a rare opportunity.
Tell others about this great chance to grow in there woodworking their knowledge
