    Jameel Abraham's thread on Oud making

    Zahid,
    I'd like to enclude the thread http://The great-grandaddy of the guitar--Oud making . This is an older thead I stumbled onto while viewing another thread. I'm new to Sawmill Creek so I haven't seen some of the older threads. I was so impressed with Jameel's work I thought this qualified as a classic thread and one that could be viewed again and again. I think this could be under the catagory of Technique and call it something like Oud/Lute making.

    This Idea of classifing threads and puting them up for easy viewing is a great idea. Thanks.

    Berl Mendenhall

    ops

    After clicking on the link I provided above I see I did something wrong. The great-grandaddy of the guitar--Oud making. Try this if it doesn't work someone will have to explain how it's done. Sorry for the inconvience.

    Berl, I added your recommended thread under the "Technique: Task" title in the top post. I also fixed your URL. Basically what you do is go to the thread you want to link/reference, copy the URL from the address line at the top of your browser. Now when you are writing your reply click the small globe icon (with a small chain link across it), it will pop-up a small window asking for URL, just paste the URL you clicked earlier in this field and click OK. It will put the URL where ever your cursor was when you clicked the globe icon.

    Zahid,

    Thank you. I'll copy and paste your explanation, maybe next time I'll get it right. Any way we got the thread posted.

    Zahid, I wonder if you could add some of the saw-making (and saw-handle making) links?

    OK, I have now added the grit comparison post, the handcut dovetails thread as well as a thread to make a simple scratch stock. These were all the outstanding requests I had stacked up. I think it would be best if we posted requests to this thread (as opposed to PM or emailing me), which is fine too but it might delay things. This way other moderators can also assist with putting things up on the original post. Don't forget to mention where you think the recommended post/thread fits.

    Eric, I have that site bookmarked as well, but the intention is to create an FAQs list for stuff that's on SMC. If we include external sites the task become more daunting and will require more up keep because we don't control the content.

    Zahid,

    There has been some terrific stuff recently on specialty planes. This is just one example:

    http://sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?t=121101

    I wonder if we are ready to create a link on specialty planes? Should I start a thread called "Specialty Planes" (of which I have almost none) and ask people to collect some of the helpful info they have posted?
