    A new page has been added to the MEMBER section of our website. This page, "Member Map", is an interactive map of all members who have approved sharing their address with other members in their privacy settings. 

    This map page requires that a member be logged on and is not available to the general public. 

    Use this page to locate potential car-pool partners. 

    Thanks to Tom Shirley for providing the technical groundwork for this new feature.

    So let's start with the definition of the verb to loll.

    Definition 1: sit, lie, or stand in a lazy, relaxed way.

    Definition 2: hang loosely; droop

    Definition 3: stick out (one's tongue) so that it hangs loosely out of the mouth.

    I think we'll stick with the first definition. Dick's clean design, aesthetic looking, and inviting chair is ready for copious lolling.  Indeed, the chair itself appears to be lolling.  Dick describes his chair and includes several pictures showing process development of his lolling chair in May's Feature Piece of the Month.

    Many factors influence what moves people to delve into details on certain topics.  One factor, that author Andrew Davis is confronting is the purchase of a new miter saw.  So Andrew writes about some of his research from a top down approach.  A miter saw family tree is where he started.  Read his account about miter saws in May's article entitled Bevel Me Miter.

    I have a friend who is famous for stating "Excess is never enough."  As I build up my workshop, I know I can use more and different types.   Andrew Davis' April submission provides a survey of different clamps and even organized a clamp family tree for your perusal.  Get the "squeeze" and take a look it here.
