121 woodworkers have donated to this website out of over 6,500 woodworkers who use it. I won’t say it.
As a donor, I know that while my contribution wasn’t large…at least I contributed something. My return to viewing Lumberjocks started about a week ago when I came back to this website after a hiatus from my shop, etc…family needs and such. Again, I was inspried to do something more in my shop from what I saw here. I’m “one-man-power” and not perfect since I also have to take care of the house and my elderly mother’s need. But the inspriation from Lumberjocks gave me a kick in the ass to do something more in my shop. Thanks everybody!
So I’m finally building the wood storage system I’ve had planned for a year or more. And….I disassembled the used lathe I bought at a garage sale in order to refurbish it’s partially rusted stand. For me, that’s getting something done. The inspiration came from looking over this website…again. More than anything I’d like to post some beautiful projects as many of you have done…just putting my shop in order has been my project.
Well, I have to have the wood storage since I scored the maple tree three years ago….the 8/4 flitches are dry and ready to use. And soon…in another 6 months, I’ll have 5/4 elm dry and ready to use….with 8/4 flitches on the way to being dry. Gosh, do you think I ought to have a good workbench? from maple and elm? Could be beautiful. Or should I use some other woods? At my speed it’ll take two years just to make the workbench…well, maybe not…but with so many inspiring workbenches pictured on this website it might take me alot less time. That’s why I’m pitching ya’ll to dig in your pockets and toss a few bucks at this website. I’d like it to be here in a few more years to keep inspring me day after day. Thanks.
