This week we recieved a lot of great feedback from the propane forge video that we posted to facebook. It’s a simple project to get you started forging for under $100. If you enjoy that clip, you must check out the rest of the video, Build a Viking Tool Chest.

We also announced the winner of the Popular Woodworking Magazine Excellence awards. The Editor’s Choice went to Al Spicer for his demilune (half-moon) marquetry table.

Also, be sure to check out the book giveaway this weekend, Build Historic American Furniture With Hand Tools.
