"From The Editor

August 2009 Issue #26

Woodworking is good for your health.

Research shows that challenging your brain to learn new things helps prevent the onset of alzheimers! So, it is in your best interest to try a new type of woodworking skill or to build something you have never made before. And, I'm sure that you will all agree with me that yet another way to keep the mind alert and active is to purchase a new tool and practice using it! Do you have someone in your life saying that you don't need that new piece of equipment that you have been drooling over? Well, now you can say that the investment is more than just for woodworking, it is for your future, for your health! Oh I'm liking this. I wonder if it works for shoes as well. It really does take concentration to adapt your walking to new shoes. Really. Honest.

When was the last time you tried your hand at a new woodworking skill? Have you done intarsia yet? Veneering? What about chip carving? Or perhaps you have been putting off building something because you have never made one before? Well, what better time to give it a try and right now. And remember, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. It is good for your health!

Happy and healthy woodworking, everyone! And have a great August.


Thanks Debbie and hopefully some more members Lumber and this forum will take heed of what you have submitted and give the Template guides a go.

That's cool, being most everything I do in woodworking is new I should have no problems keeping an active brain,--well I know people that would argue that I have a real serious problem!! I will just ignore them.

I'd go with that. My model engineering gang will mostly never see 60 again and I'd long realised that having a hobby where the brain is still planning ahead keeps us all going way beyond those who retire and just sit in a chair all day. Many of my model engineers are in their eighties and some beyond that.
