      Subject: [MedievalSawdust] Greetings! and a request

      Greetings all!

      Having lurked for the last couple of weeks, I have decided I was definitely in the right place. I am Lochlainn MacGregor out of the Shire of Ravenslake, a small community on the northern borders of the Middle Kingdom. I have been a woodworker for most of my life and have finally come back to the SCA after about a 19 year hiatus. I pride myself on my joinery, never really using metal fasteners at all unless absolutely necessary. I have recently taken on the mantle of MoAS and figured it was time I get off my backside and start doing some period pieces

      I commend this list for its solid advice and stories of wood related interest (boy, did I cringed during the banter "Dramatic Joint Failure." In Fact, I have a friend with many mature Poplars on his land of which he dropped a couple late this spring.  I checked the logs and sadly, the heartwood was not quite suitable for a new roller, either just too small to get a sufficient size when quartered or not straight enough. Wish I could have been of service, Mighel.

      I have done a bit of searching over the web and have found numerous appropriate sites covering the subject. What I would like to ask of you all is a list of your favorite sites covering construction of period furniture, finishing, examples, research sources or any wood lore info. I hope to consolidate this info into a usable file going from the basic to horrendously advanced as we have a number of folks here interested in learning woodworking (and of course to make their camps flashier)

      Thanks in advance!
      Lochlainn
