Marc’s new book

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I’ve been gone about 3 months with work issues, nursing my wife who broke her foot, and helping a friend through a house problem. Got a lot to catch up on. 

I see Marc is deep into writing a new book. Do we know anything about it?  I’m sure I missed some talk about it.

It's got a lot of "splined miters", or what ever they're called, in it.  Hope the wife and friend are doing well!

Thanks guys!  Wife is slowly improving.  Tore a couple of tendons in her foot.  Doctor said it would have been better if she'd just broken it but she's in a boot and doing therapy.  Another 6 weeks or so.

I figured Marc's next book would be less general.  I enjoyed Hybrid Woodworking so I'm looking forward to it.

Think Marc mentioned in a Facebook Guild group post fairly recently that the book was about joinery.

It is about joinery.  From what he's written, it's a much different take than Hybrid Woodworking - much less text, much heavier on pictures/images and captions.

I just for haha's looked up the date of birth range for millennials... I'm a millennial! :o And here I thought I was a grumpy old man stuck in a early 30 year old persons body...

What seems to me to be odd, is that , that Baby Boomers start at 1945..... What are we called that were born before that?  Almost dead?

According to the Pew Research Center, the individuals born between the years 1928-1945, are referred to as "The Silent Generation," and that baby boomers start in the year 1946. However being that these dates are not set in stone, it is all subjective.

"The Greatest Generation", in some cases!

I was born in '43 but NO ONE has ever called me silent by any stretch of thought. LOL
