Greetings to your site! I feel I must write a blog due to all the welcomes I received, feeling somewhat guilty for even joining. Heavens, I’m not a woodworker… but I do admire them… you, I guess. I shall ramble around a bit. I came here to look at and share with a friend the work of my daughter’s boyfriend.. which I find to be quite nice! He is Adrian Billsborough.. if I spelled it right. If not.. well I am finally just able to remember the name for the first time, so this is good.

I once belonged to OWWM.. joined it because I work in a saw factory and wanted to see if anyone mentioned us.. found the posts to be wonderful and tried to keep up. My salvation was when it became a Yahoo site, and I had to re-join. I decided to do that after all the previous mails were read. This will never happen. I read many and seldom saw names mentioned that I knew… but sometimes.

The little bit of viewing I have been doing here has been great so far. I’m sure I will enjoy being a member and looking at great woodworking. My grandfather who raised me was a woodworker, and I spent much time hanging out with him while he was making things. I have always loved the customers at my work, and the concept of a woodworker.. rather on the lines of a poet or an artist.. maybe all three rolled into one. Please don’t mind me here, but I’m sorry to say, I have no projects. I am here to admire your’s.

If anyone has any questions about “Original Saw” or “DeWalt” Radial Arm Saws, please do not hesitate to tell me. I will ask questions and tell you what I can find out.

I look forward to viewing your pages! Thank you so much for being so kind and welcoming here.
Happy Woodworking! And if you want to see some pretty projects, go and visit Adrian’s page. Hopefully I’ll make a link here for you.

Hi Butter,

This site is composed of members who display the entire gamut of skill levels- from those who simply have an interest in woodworking to those who are seasoned professionals, artists and craftspersons. The one commonality that is shared among members of this site is simply the love and admiration of wood. To be honest with you I see nothing in your blog to feel guilty about.

To put is simply if you love wood then you do indeed belong here and are welcome.

Have fun and enjoy.

The talent here is amazing. I love to surf the site and look at everyone’s projects. I am always in awe at some of the things that this community creates… some functional, some art… all amazing. Have fun, make yourself at home!

So glad to have you. Enjoy yourself and input when and where you can…Stay around long enough and we will make a woodworker out of you. There’s something about working with wood that is very satisfying. And remember that there are small simple projects too. Those that can be done with a hand saw, hammer and a few nails. We all started somewhere.
