    Free necks

    Sorry, I have NO IDEA what you are doing/speaking of/etc. Please explain to those who are clueless...as that is imperative in instructables...even just a few seconds would be informative. Also, a picture (or video!) is worth a thousand words. However, the term and the picture of your hand did make me click on your instructable...even if I am still clueless about it.

    Wood Burned Letters

    I clicked on your instructable because it looked interesting. My son bought me a woodburning tool with many tips, but I have not had an opportunity to use it yet. I was expecting that your instructable would demonstrate how to make a few of the designs using different tips, etc, since I do not know how to use my new tool yet. Therefore, I was disappointed when you did not do this. It was simply an idea of a craft to do. You could really improve it by adding as I mentioned above and doing so in a way that would excite people into buying a woodburning tool that is inexpensive but can be used to make nice gifts. Nevertheless, it did give me some ideas and make me want to break out my tool and try it. Thanks!

    Make a Spokeshave

    Yours was a very well-done instructable in most every aspect and should be a winner!I I would have liked it better if you began with even only 45 seconds of an explanation about what a spokeshave is, what it does and how to use it. The video portion to go along with the text should contain close-ups of the tool and a pointing device (slender contrasting colored stick made with a spokeshave?) "touching/sliding over the parts as you speak and of course, you actually using the tool in different ways on an actual project with the words such as you briefly did at the end of the video. It does not need to be long for this type of intro. In fact, you did well with brevity, yet clarity--just reorder your video and elaborate on the portions as I expressed above.

Another really nice "bonus' would have been to include a few shots of ways the average Joe (or Jane!) could use this tool around their house/yard. I am thinking of uses such as to shave off a small splinter on a fence or planter, or get into to tough to reach places on a project. (Unless I am wrong about this). I am a very beginner woodworker, and I had never heard the term "spokeshave". If you made these changes as I delineated above, i It would excite me (and others) into thinking --"Hey, I could really use one of these. I am going to make one this week!" Nevertheless, since my mind is always whirring with ideas, I will make one!
