Every other day or so, I get an e-mail about the quotations we ran in Woodworking Magazine and “used” to run in Popular Woodworking Magazine, from folks wondering why we no longer include them. But we do! You’ll find them in most of the feature articles, in a colored box tucked into the text (though I’ll concede that the text is smaller than it once was, and perhaps a little bit harder to spot, simply because we don’t want to take too much space away from the article).
But those e-mails got me to thinkin’ that those of you who appreciate those quips, aphorisms and precepts might enjoy a retrospective of the quotations we included in Woodworking Magazine…in serial format (what can I say; I’m a slow typist).
