Good morning, Members! It has been a while since I have posted, but this article has enthused me to get typing. I had the greatest of pleasure meeting Tom O'Donnell a few years ago at the Perth Wood and Tool Show in Western Australia. Gentlemen, this man is a genius. He has everyone watching his demonstrations absolutely mesmerised. Myself included. His idea of making a jig for almost everything is, well, genius. Hands and fingers are kept away from the bit in every instance. Such a brilliant idea. Personally, I seem to not be able to think in what appears to be 5 dimensions. Tom can not only imagine a project, but can see all the jigs needed for any given part of the project. For me, just thinking of some of these jigs makes my head hurt.....but I did purchase his basic jig, dvd and some plans. The skis idea is incredible. He made a dining chair with only his router. Nothing else. Even the curved back of the chair(enter the skis idea). Wonderful ideas, and a wonderful man.
