The following is the most recent post I have on Google+ (many of us now call it g+), in case you cannot see the post there. If you follow this blog, you already know I started this series as a tool to help newcomers to Google+ find woodworking people on the new Google platform.

Woodworker Update #6: The Bloggers – Part 4.
You will find Part 3 of The Bloggers series here.
If you are just starting on Google+: Be sure to visit the Woodworker List, at *http://www.group.as/woodworker/, to see who are the woodworkers in Google+ as of today. *If you are a woodworker, and you wish to have your name on the list, enter your Google+ ID in the space above the list, so I can approve your name and others will also add you to their Circles.*
Reminder: I am going through my Woodworking Circle alphabetically. If I missed anyone, I apologize ahead of time. It will take several Parts to complete the list of Bloggers – as of today I am at the letter “L”.
If I don’t have you in my Woodworker Circle, I will likely miss you if you are a blogger. PLEASE, let me know. Also, it is most helpful if you have links to your blog(s) in your Profile on Google+.
Now to the five bloggers featured today:
– I will paraphrase from Vic’s Profile on Google+: Vic is an Energy Efficiency Consultant by day, but at night and on weekends he transforms into a woodworker; his blog is TumbleWood Creations, http://www.tumblewood.blogspot.com/. Although he won’t brag about his first project much, I will: Vic’s first furniture project was published in the August 2011 edition of Fine Woodworking magazine. You can see that wonderful first project, an amazing cradle creation, at the FineWoodworking.com photo Gallery. Make sure to click on the images, and enlarge them. Vic also loves hiking, photography and his dogs.
– The Village Carpenter herself, Kari blogs at http://villagecarpenter.blogspot.com/. You first met Kari in the list of women woodworkers. Kari must multi-task, as she is also the Popular Woodworking Magazine
Editor for the Tricks of the Trade column, a task she has held since 2009. She also own her own graphics design company, Step One Design, Inc. Kari hope to”…build stuff till I die…” Kari, a bunch of us hope you will build stuff for a LONG time!
– Tom blogs at Tom’s Workbench, http://tomsworkbench.com/, and also writes a column for WOOD Magazine, . He claims: “…I am the only trained shop monkey I am aware of…” Of course, Tom and Kari (above) also participate in the Wood Talk Radio Show. By day, and during “weather events”, Tom has the important role of Emergency Manager for Pinellas County Government, Florida.
– I admit it, and I apologize to Adam ahead of time. Adam, I have not been diligent keeping up with your recent, *enchanting* (to borrow ‘s word) and fascinating (NEW) blog, Adam King, at http://www.adamking.me/. But I can share this much about it: Adam, your paper on Depression Cure for Artists is outstanding!!! For readers who have never followed Adam’s blog, The Woodworker’s Journey at http://www.woodworkersjourney.com/, you can track the change in Adam from woodworker to to coach, as he grew into an individual working to help others be successful in their woodworking *business*. I witnessed the change as I read his old blog; and I met Adam at Woodworking in America in Cincinnati – I am very glad I did!
– Bartee blogs at My Saw / Custom Woodworking, http://mysaw.com/blog/. In addition to woodworking, Bartee also is involved in the Christian ministries Souly Business and Celebrate Recovery. Please look at his Profile for the links to the ministries. Bartee, my hat’s off to you for doing this important work!
That’s it for today. I will continue the series on The Bloggers in the next few days. Thanks for reading – I hope you enjoy meeting your woodworking bloggers, who give so much of themselves, including techniques kept secret for centuries… 😉
