Why Extras?

There's lots more to woodworking than plans and tools and sawdust. Woodworking is meditative, interesting, challenging, solitary, useful, and creative. There are also elements of design and environment. And while it can be utilitarian, there's also an sense of making and leaving one's mark on the world.
How does all this happen, especially in one's basement or garage? Well, it doesn't happen just in the shop. It happens in your mind. And that's what this blog is about, bringing the full spectrum of the woodworking experience to one place where it can be accessed and enjoyed.
The sawdust will be yours. The plans will come from Woodsmith and ShopNotes magazines. The tools, designs and everything else will come from where ever I find it and you can get to it.
I've been thinking about this for a long time. Now let's see if it works.
