I rarely post any "Editorial
or "Letter from the Editor" here. The site is informal and I focus
content. However, there is something that needs a
Many of you noticed that there are
changes occurring in the "Contributors" menu. Some familiar
names were replaced with new ones and an additional page - "Other
Contributors" - was added. Yes, I am making small changes to
the website and bringing in new contributors.
I received several emails from
readers about Schwarz's section with questions about it being
moved to "Other
Contributors" page. At the same time a few rumors and
speculations about it popped up
on various forums.
Chris Schwarz informed me at the
beginning of this year that he will not engage anymore in tool
review articles for Fine Tool Journal. He decided that it is
more important for him to concentrate on his publishing business
and his passion of building interesting pieces of furniture.
Since almost all his posts with us
were a "reprint" of articles from Fine Tool Journal, it is
understandable that new material from Chris was not forthcoming
anymore. I have kept his section at the front for almost a year
and recently I have move it to the "Other
Contributors" page. All articles are still available
to the readers and Google search was not affected with this
"relocation". That's all there is to it.
Now, since I have your attention -
there will be more "relocations" like that in the near
future. Some of our contributors decided to retire, others moved
their focus to other priorities in their lives. My sincere Thank
You! to all of them for working together to built this website.
My goal is to continue delivering
fresh and exciting material. We will bring new contributors to
share their knowledge and experience. I also invite everyone to
consider contributing to this unique and popular website. Please
your articles and share your experiences with others.
