Stupid question

Hi!
Can anyone out there (in the netherworld of addicted woodworkers) please tell us the correct pronunciation of Beismer (as in fence)?
A steak dinner rides on this
Best,

Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.

Do you mean Biesemeyer? I've always heard it pronounced bess-i-mire,
Please forgive me I don't have the foggiest idea how to put pronunciation or accent marks with a keyboard.
Thing is, with names you never know unless you ask the person whose name it is. My last name has been butchered since my relatives came to the U.S. Unless you ask a person with the name, you'll never really know.

Socially unacceptable, Politically incorrect!

Bees -my- er

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I agree. I ave no idea how to put my pronounciation in text.

Even when you ask the person his name it don't work all the time. My great great grandfathers name was Breun but he wrote horribly and everyone said it was Brown. He finally gave up and said fine it's Brown. No paperwork or anything just up and changed the name.

+1 to Cabinetman. I've heard it as Beez-my-yer or also as bees-eh-my-er

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

bees - e - my - er.
