wo things any experienced craftsman knows: (1) Good tools are a pleasure to work with, and (2) it's good to have options. Because we enjoy quality tools, we've chosen Google to provide the search engine for this site. Unfortunately, this is a new site and it's growing. Although we are registering our pages with Google as quickly as we post them, it takes time for them to send out their spider-bots to survey a new page, collect the keywords, do that voodoo they do so well, and add it to their archives. For that reason, we have also provided an optional method for you to search. If Google fails to find a topic that you request, check our Site Index. The index may not have the horsepower of a search engine – you look up topics the old-fashioned way, i.e. alphabetically – but it will usually be more current than the search engine. And perhaps because our index has been assembled by woodworkers, it may be more in tune with the way you think when you're looking for woodworking information.
