Dear reader

Hoping that this e-mail finds you well and 2019 has started off well?!

You are receiving this newsletter from S&W because you expressed an interest in my woodworking.

Newsletters are sent on a somewhat sporadic basis, although 2018 was rather more sporadic than I had hoped for - but I will be spending more time in the wood-shop in 2019.

If you ever find that what is offered is not for you, Drop me a line, tell me what could be changed, alternatively simply click 'unsubscribe' at the bottom of any email.
Thanks for your continued interest in S&W.

And don't forget to follow Biggles and me on FaceBook & Instagram
PS - I have changed over to a new Newsletter platform and there are going to be a few glitches as we plane things out a bit...

This was the beginning of the Stone Age, the period in human history that marks the advent of tool production. The name comes from the fact that most of the period’s cutting tools are made from stone.
