That is interesting that you have worked with a couple of OakTable members. You are probably being humorous (or just name dropping :-) ), but I actually had the opportunity to work with Randolf Geist on the two chapters for the book. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the book - I bought 2 copies of the book myself.

Funny that you should mention furniture store - I worked my way though college building furniture (and other items) in a woodworking shop. Would you like the larger block size for your indexes - would you prefer oak, cherry, or walnut. The larger block size will cost you more, of course, but I will round over the edges in case the block later fragments. I still have a bigger tablesaw and jointer than that other guy (Norm), so I can go plenty larger with the block size if required.
