Miter Sawtune up
etting Issue 1 of THIS is
Carpentry online was lled
 with bumps and thrills. Wegot lots of good feedback about ourcontent and format, and several com-plaints about software issues as well.David and the good folks at Yellow House have been ironing out the tech-nical wrinkles, and we’re hoping thatIssue 2 goes without a hitch. Admit-tedly, our magazine is a little aheadof the curve—some computers have a
tough time with the ash format. For
that reason, this issue can be easily 
downloaded in PDF format, and the
 videos and animated drawings arestill accessible! As we stressed in Issue 1, the staff atTHISisCarpentry is passionate about bringing our readers detailed and in-depth stories about the craft of carpen-try. We readily attribute a large partof our passion to
The Journal of Light Construction
 ( www.jlconline.com), and to
 Fine Homebuilding
 ( www. 
m), who faithful-ly continue to provide vital informa-tion to the trades. TIC hopes to pick up where those printed publicationsleave off, bringing you articles that
don’t sacrice detail to t the printed
page; stories with rich multi-mediasupport, including photos, video, andillustrations. We want our articles toprovide the knowledge to make car-pentry easier to understand and moreenjoyable, while offering glimpses into
the lives of these amazing craftsmen―
people just like you! We’ve worked especially hard onthis issue. InDesigning CLASS on page 16
you’ll nd a seemingly simple
story by Bent Hull on chair rail. Buton closer inspection, you’ll discoverthat this piece isn’t just about a singlemolding; Brent also offers an easy-to-follow explanation for understandingthe classical rules of proportion andhow those rules apply to your proj-ects, something that has always beena mysterious, convoluted subject.On page 46we’ve also included an in-depth story on how to tune up your mi-ter saw—a subject that has challenged
every carpenter since that rst miter
saw fell off its saw stand—or tail gate. With miter saws getting more accu-rate, and our work demanding a higher
level of both efciency and quality, it’s
imperative to keep your saw in tip-topshape. We chose author, David Col-lins, who has spent decades developingtools that improve mitered joints, and
 who knows rst-hand how important
it is to start with a perfect cut.Our Tools in USE department, page 140 has another unusual story: AlConstan’s article on oscillating cut-ters. While TIC tries to stay away fromhead-to-head horse race comparisons between tools, Al’s research was neces-
sary to nd out the truth about blades.
If you own one of these Multi-TaskingTools you know that it’s all about the
 blades. We set Al to the task of nding
out which blades worked best, which
 blades t which tools, and what cut
ting techniques help your blades—and
 your hands—last longer. And have you ever wondered how tomake Chinese Chippendale fretwork?Looks easy, right? NOT! Just ask RJDavisson, who takes us through all themathematical machinations, as wellas the how to’s of making a “Chippy”  balustrade on page 82.Remember, if you have a story you want to tell, something that mighthelp other carpenters enjoy their jobsmore, join the TIC community! Wecan help you tell it.
Gary, Roe, David, & Tristan
