I stumbled onto this website about 2 years ago and have found it to be a really great place to show your work and to see the work of others from all walks of life and from around the world. This inspires me to do better. I wish I was better at working with images and understanding how all that works. It is so labor intensive for me to try to do that, I just hate spending all that time at the computer. I’d rather be working in the workshop. Right now I have more than 10 projects that I would love to post and just don’t have the time to do it. More than anything I have enjoyed the interaction with woodworkers outside the US. I really feel like I have made friends with people that I would really like to meet and work with.

Your posts are always so positive and you add the humor that makes it fun. I am so jealous of how you have gotten to meet Mads, Napoleon, Flemming and do things together. This is the real lumberjocks experience. I often think about the image of you dragging around a heavy box to bring it to Mads for him to make a tool from. Now what kind of friend does that? I’d love to have a friend like that.

I hope you’ll keep posting and keep encouraging the rest of us to do better. I for one hope the opportunity comes for me to come to Denmark and hang out with you and talk wood for awhile. The invitation stands for you to come to Florida any time.

Glædelig jul og godt nytår

David :Merry Chrismas to you :-)

grizzmann : just so you know you was one of them I thought about when I desided to
post a little pastry ….I knew how well you like a good dinner so I thought a little dessert would
be proppiate to selebrate with ….LOL

Ken : I can tell you it has been a lot easyer to post project and pictures in a blog now , just use the IMG
botton and follow direction and opload directly from your own computer :-)
and yes that meeting was speciel the head still spin around from all the speedtalk and the
crazy speed that planes fly by my yes in those 24 hours …LOL
if you ever have a chance to meet other from the site then grab the opetunity with open arms
no matter what it cost of your precius sparetime you think could have been used in the shop instead
believe me you wont regret it :-)... just one warning your beloved fammely will think
you has gone nuts when you return and can´t talk about anything ells the next month….LOL

as long as people can take my sick flat jokes and bad english I promisse I will try to make possitive
comment´s as the classclown always do…LOL and maybee even can swing me up to make a real
project in the next 20 years or so

take care

You have also been a great inspiration to so many people on this site and are a big part of why I like it here so much. Your kind words and encouragement that you give to all here are so greatly appreciated and also inspire others to do the same. You are a fine example of what this site is about – friendship, creativity and learning. I am very glad to have met you here and I am honored to call you my friend. :)

Merry Christmas to you too! Sheila

Thanks for being my Ayes in Aero…......(or is that Eyes in Aero?).......and keeping me laughing even when the day is a little grim.

Got way too busy last weekend, so yesterday was a true recovery day, spent some time in the shop, but I was too tired to do anything difficult.

This is my favorite place on the web, and it is people like you that make it possible…..........

Best of the Holidays to all,

Jim and Kermit
