I have been given the honor of moderating a new forum on, the web site run by Tommy Mac from the Rough Cuts show on PBS.

The new forum is called “Going Pro” and is aimed at those who wish to take the next step and turn their hobby of wood working into a business. We welcome all those interested in this topic to drop in and take part. If you’re a craftsman who has “been there, done that”, then come on over and give us your views on the subject. If you’re looking for helpful info on making the move to going pro, come on over and ask your questions. We’ll try to get them answered for you.

I’d love to see a lot of my LJ friends coming over to join in the discussions. These two sites mesh beautifully for the woodworking community.

Hi Paul. I was just logged on to the site and was unable to find a link or button to click for the forum. Do you have to log in before it is available? What are the steps to getting to the forum? Thanks.
