Thanks for the insightful short article. Wasn't very helpful to me, but I'm sure this will help out newbies. Can anyone recommend me a new circular saw? I've been reading, but their selection of reviews is kind of large and I don't know what to pick.

This is also good for wives who do not understand wood-working tools. This puts it simple and straight forward. For those who do not like the site try the back button. It's easy.

Magazines always struggle with trying to satisfy their main audience while attracting new readers, in this case beginning woodworkers. A better title on the article would have let readers know it was intended for beginners but anyone should be able to figure out if an article is worth reading after just a few lines. If it isn't, don't read it. It's not a big deal. Wood Magazine is a great magazine but it can't be everything for everyone.

Don't be so elitist about this. There are those that could use this information.

I don't think that this was worthless - I remember when I was new I needed something like this to help me understand the tools - but it was poorly titled, which is why so many experienced woodworkers ended up taking a look and being dissapointed. If it had been titled "Beginners Guide to Woodworking Tools" perhaps the comments would be more favorable.

I've been a woodworker for 20 plus years. I'm not ashamed to admit that there is something that everyone out there could teach me. Move on.

Good stuff. It's unfortunate that the know-it-alls don't get it. Items like this make it easier to teach people new to woodworking and, unlike our jaded "experts" I can always learn something new. Good job!

You guys saying it is a waste of time. I guess you were born with a drill press attached to your hip. Although I know how to use one. Other subscribers may not even own one yet. Be for real children. The magazine isnt just for the pro. Thank you Wood magazine for doing such a great job.

So many magazines forget there are children and beginners who benefit greatly from basic information such as this. This is not a waste of anyone's time except those whose egos are too big to tolerate those who have not yet gained the experience and knowledge we all wish for.

If you didn't already know this, how/why did you end up at a woodworking related web sight? Worthless waste of time.
