Cedar Waxwings - 5 replies

Over the years, our property has become a stopover for the cedar waxwings migrating from the summer breading range in Canada to the winter range in the southern US and as far as South America.

Over One Million - 2 replies

I see that there have been over a million comments on LJ. When comment number 1,000,000 was posted, I wonder if the lucky LJ’s computer started beeping and flashing?

Hats Off To Rockler - 4 replies

I am once again impressed with the quality of customer service at Rockler. I ordered a set of three plug cutters online.

Jointer Tasks - 6 replies

There is something that I am just curious about. I am a hobbyist and I have a Delta 8” jointer that I use very often. For me, it is just a two-trick pony.
