Well I missed the anniversary date but it has been, just slightly, over five years that I have been a member here.

Thank you all for your support and interesting work

Be seeing you.

Martyn – you were one of my first friends here. On the first day I came to look at this site, I read your blog about a trip you were making to the lumber yard. As I read your story I thought to myself – “There’s someone who I can relate to!” and when I saw your amazing work, I was just taken aback by the beauty and precision that you executed your designs. I know that this would be a place that I would enjoy (in a large part because of you.)

Over these years I have come to look upon you as a mentor and a friend. Seeing the way you openly share your processes and helped others made me admire you even more.

Congratulations on your anniversary. I am very fortunate to have come to know you through this site and very honored to have you as a friend.

Thank you! Sheila

Hi Martyn, I have to say that Sheila is right on the mark! Besides, you didn’t miss the anniversary, you simply started your second 5 years without realizing it.
I always look forward to your postings with anticipation. Thanks for always sharing so generously.
Have a wonderful day.

Hey Martyn, it’s been a slice!
You are a great woodworking artist and a fine LJ.
I very much like to think of you as my friend.
