Mother of invention When Tamar Hannah sees a need, she meets it head-on. The mother of three schoolage children took to woodworking five years ago when even an exhaustive internet search didn’t yield the piece of household furniture she was seeking—a bench with built-in firewood storage. So, she built it. Since then, she has designed and created beds, bars, benches, and guitars. “Everything comes from a need. I need storage, I need a guitar—we all need guitars,” she quipped. Hannah’s self-taught woodworking education combined YouTube videos with a healthy dose of trial and error. When she noticed most of the instructors were men, Hannah saw a need for a female woodworking role model. True to form, she met that need too by creating her own YouTube channel, 3x3 Custom. Putting her…

oops! wrong number

The Black Walnut & Copper Vase story (Feb/Mar 2021) has an error. The drawing lists the sides at 11¾" tall, but the story says to mill a single piece 22" long to yield these two sides. What gives? —Herman Susser, via email Associate editor Derek Richmond replies: The error is in the drawing dimension. Each side should be 10¾" long, which can be milled out of a single piece 22" long, as instructed. The correct dimension is shown here, and it will be corrected in the online version of the article as well. Thanks for keeping us honest.…

no more for me

Like nearly everyone else this past year, I’ve had a lot on my plate and am just now getting around to reading the June/July 2020 issue of Woodcraft Magazine. What a hoot on page 64, “There’s always one more” I’d bet just about every reader has experienced this same thing. How many times I’ve gone scavenging for a nut, bolt, screw, drawer pull or knob…I don’t know! But it’s been more than a few times. I would need, for example, four screws, just alike…you guessed it, there were only three, only three! There’s gotta be one more. Unfortunately, in my case, there seldom was. —Jack W. Stanford, via email…
