WunderWood owner Scott Wunder is on his way to achieving meme status at WoodworkingNetwork. His story on battling a curly cherry bar top, distributed in a newsletter under the provocative "A Woodworker Walks Into a Bar" headline, was most viewed for three days.

One of Wunder's tell-it-like-it-is style and immensely practical advisories on finishing, planing, sawmilling and joinery were most viewed this week. Also popular: Designed & Made woodshop owner Brian Grabski's creative videos of his furniture and cabinetry projects, and bloggist and video reporter Jared Patchin, owner of J Alexander Fine Woodworking's look at buying a CNC.
