So I have a job that I was able to fully automate about 3 years ago. Leaving me with about 7.5 hours a day to sit and scour the Internet. I have asked for additional duties in the past but the big guys just seem to give me meaningless busy work or get irritated and think I am just barking for a raise. So I stay put and surf the web and dream about what the next step will be for my current project. Its nice to be able to sit back and really think out the next phase so I a def not complaining. Anyways, I have a solid plan for my next two projects but I was wondering if anyone had any advice on a website or two that I can read up on wood working? I have pretty much covered a majority of this forum so now I want to read more thats out there. I prefer written articles over video as it is a bit much to play my speakers while others actually have work to do. And I am a beginner at wood working so anything really technical may go right over my head. I am open to anything. Thanks in advance.

I've learned more from the past archives on here than anywhere else......too many of the other websites take their ideas as gospel rather than one way to approach woodworking. Now too bad you can't just move your shop into your office. Lol.

the wood whisperer is a good site.
and lol at your job situation. I was in a similar one the last place I worked, used a lot of that down time to study and get certs to get a better (in this case better means higher pay) job. I hated moving on as the company and my boss were great to work for, I was jsut to bored and needed a higher paying job.
