    Do you have woodworking knowledge you're just dying to share?
    Want to be an author at Sawmill Creek?

    Now you have a new area to publish articles!

    If you want to publish an article, you can join our authors group, which gives you access to a forum which is open only to would-be authors at SawmillCreek. This is a staging area for new articles, where you can post a new article, and we'll review for publication. Once you're ready to publish it, we'll promote it on the front page of SawmillCreek!


    The process is simple:

    1. Join the Authors group by visiting this page.
    2. Once you have access, visit the Authors forum.
    3. Start your article by creating a new thread in that forum.


    TIPS

    If your article is too long for a single post, don't fret ! Spread your article over multiple posts, and we'll merge them together into a single post when the article is ready to be published.

    Try posting pictures inline for visual interest.

    Choose a catchy, yet descriptive title!

    Writer's Block?

    We're looking for tool reviews, woodworking tips, woodturning techniques, jigs and fixtures, finished projects step-by-step, finishing techniques, social woodworking experiences, and even good compilations of our existing thread topics.

    Good luck and Happy writing!

    Back Brace?

    There's a natural back brace called the stomach. It's cheap and affordable to make stronger and less heavy and most back problems fade away.

    I was joking. Not about the kickback, that was real enough and hurt like crazy, but about expecting SS stopping it.
