    The FPoTM archive found under Resources was corrupted.  I converted the entries into 3 content gadgets with the hope that the formatting will stick.  For all rows to be properly aligned, data in all columns are set to Tahoma typeface, 14 font size, Auto height, and Delete space before paragraph.

    ArtTalk with Steve McKenna

    by Steve McKenna and LexMedia

    And now for something completely different...Steve McKenna, professional woodworker and multi-contributor to this column, has provided a closer view into his work.  In this wonderful video Steve is interviewed about his work and provides considerable detail for woodworkers that covers his artistry plus his process.  It's almost a how-to video for members to better understand, for example, the joinery for his exquisite rocking chairs.  This ArtTalk with Steve McKenna, Furniture Maker, a LexMedia Production, is an excellent contribution to be a Featured Piece of the Month.

    Finishing Frustrations Part II

    by Andrew Davis

    Last month Andrew was not finished with Finishing Frustrations.  Apparently, the frustrations are overflowing.  I stand by what I said last month.

    There is no argument for many woodworkers, their woodworking Achilles' heel is finishing.  I always thought this last stage was ill named because you have to ask yourself, how many times does it take to restart "finishing" and fix problems before you are satisfied?  Only the last attempt should be called Finishing, i.e., when you are FINISHED!...

    ...Relax and enjoy more laughs while commiserating with Andrew, this time with his sequel article Finishing Frustrations Part II.

    Preparation is More

    than Half the Battle

     by Rob Carver

    Reading Rob's article this month, I realize preparation lasts longer than I expected.  In fact, it's probably a lot more than half the battle.  For me and especially for a new project, preparation starts with the first inkling of wanting to make a piece. I design cognitively for a while before putting anything down on paper or screen.  I guess my thought about preparation was the first step immediately followed by the last step. Yep, two serial steps and you're done.  Seems simple and efficient.  Right?  The concept here is that if you prepare well, the intended outcome is successful - don't skimp on preparation.  But now I'm thinking, preparation continues until you say "Done".

    What is your take on Preparation is More than Half the Battle?
