I agree. There's been about 4 or 5 times over the past 25 years or so that I've made a jig or came up with an idea to use, thought about submitting it, but procrastinated until I forgot about it, and then I see it in a wood magazine. Oh well, maybe I'll change my name to Serge and start submitting, who knows!

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!

Why so many tips? Because of health issues I'm confined at home, but still have the passion. So I spend all the time I can in my basement workshop and whenever I find a new tip or technique I send it to magazines (look at it as a passtime). Over the years I sent 425 tips, reason why so many were picked-up and published.

As found by Gref, I share my passion, my knolewdge and my experience almost daily on my humble blog.

By the way, because of illness I had to retire and I'm now 64.



PS: Jealousy vs Commitment
Serge? Is that really you? Hey, it's wonderful to have you here! Welcome. I've seen your shop and, man, you've got quite a nice setup. And I've seen a lot of your tips in the mags. Many of them are pretty darned good too!

Thanks, Steve.

Yes, it is really me! A friend of mine sent me the link to this forum and I decided to sign in so anyone would know that it was not a magazine's fabrication. As mentioned, because I'm confined at home because of illness I decided to sit down and share my woodworking experience and what I come up with. I learned that creativity rises while the body is on neutral.

I like my shop and I reorganize it regularly since it's way too small and way too crowded. Nothing is fancy in there and I own must of my tools for decades. What I like the most is making tools, jigs and fixtures, what is greatly appreciated by magazines as I learned over the years.

Because of my illness I don't know if I will sign up regularly, but I decided to sign in anyway.
