I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m having a hard time keeping up. Especially with my one fingered ”Hunt, & Peck” typing. I see we hit 400 projects this morning, isn’t that something ?
I might have to hire a secretary, so I can keep up around here. That’s about all I have to say today. Besides, I have to save on my finger.

YEAAAH - 400 projects – that is something, Dick.. amazing. I think we’re becoming the largest source of woodworking inspiration...

But, on the other hand.. I don’t want to ruin your lives by hiring secretaries or spending more time in front of the pc screens than in your workshops.. so if more than 51% jocks vote for it I can close our site down ;)

I discovered about a month ago that I couldn’t keep up with you!

appreciate you Dick, if you need a secretary get one, lol,

I do realize that all of this growth is a huge burden on you Martin. Thanks again for all of your free-time efforts and vision,
Mark

Thumbs down on that offer Martin. You can’t get out of this that easy.
Besides I think there’s a lot of future jocks looking for this place. I was going to try to be 400, but my finger, plus my brain couldn’t keep up.
PS: I should be getting my new specks today, so my hunting should be a little quicker.

Hey Guys’, & Ladies’ Too.
If I put all of my projects on here, we’d probably be hitting 600 by now. It’s a good thing I am kinda slow, besides, I wouldn’t want to wear out my welcome. The other Jocks may vote for the banishment of me instead.
Another quote Martin. ”This site is still the top of the Heap”

It’s gotten nuts since I signed up, and that was only 2 weeks ago, love it though, so many beautiful pieces of inspiration show up every time I log on…

Well, let’s see. Dick startin workin on projects right after the flood, and he has almost a hunnerd on here all by hissef (Pronounced “his- seff”) Not bad for a Huntin’ Pecker. HAHAHAHA

And I just did the “w-o-r-k” thing. I dry-fit the first part of the Mantel I was workin on, had to smoke a cigar, and watch part of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to get more ideas on furniture.

Rough job, but somebody’s gotta do it

WOW !!!
Now I’ll never catch up, about a hundred projects in a week.

I know what you mean. I had set a goal to try to read all posts. I’m now back 81 days, but it is now difficult to read everything that is being posted in a day.

I flip my pulse settings between 24 hours and 7 days. I couldn’t believe the explosion of projects on Martins Birthday, but I didn’t expect the pace to keep up, if not quicken since then!

I think I”m seeing all the projects, I KNOW i’m missing comments, and when I hit the Shuffle, I see some new stuff – that is only 2 or 3 days old!

THis place is exploding, yet as I’ve just become aware of the Local Woodworking guild in NH, I see that there are still a ton of woodworkers that either haven’t signed up, or are blissfully unaware of our presence.

What are we going to do as we keep growing exponentially?

I just hope this place remains as friendly as it does today. There is a stong sense of community here.
