Madburg is Martin.  Totally different.

I love the whole premise of "Quiet Woodworking".  I recently turned off the back ground noise from my Spotify app while working in my shop...I just listen to my hand tools working a piece of wood.  It makes me think back to days long gone when so many craftsmen worked in their shops, with out the radio or music playing.  Maybe they heard the kids playing outside the shop, or a farmer working his field, who knows.  We are missing out listening to too much "noise" coming into our homes, shops & lives.  Thanks Martin for posting.  


Wish I could have brought myself to post a project of two in March, but with no “Pulse” to make it easy to see what’s new and happening, I find I’m spending less time on the site. Any word on when we might see that, Martin?

May you have the day you deserve!

I’d suggest you PM Martin directly , Dave. I don’t know that he’s able to read every thread here. Maybe though! I agree, I’d like to see Pulse back (or something like it)
