I am very curious how many of us found this site from Marcs shirt in episode 12 “The Big Squeeze.” I love what Marc is doing out there and would like him to be able in a small way to quantify his influence… Post here if you came to LumberJocks via Marc and lets find out… Marc may be the new Normanator for the internet generation… I am betting this may be the beginning of something bigger for him and we are here to see it happen…

I found out about both Lumberjocks and Marc’s pod casts by listening to the Matt’s Basement Workshop podcast. I’ve been a subscriber for a year or so….

I found Lumber Jocks through an internet search while looking for something that I can’t remember now.

I’m with you Drew. I came here via his mention of the site a few casts ago. His shows are informative and witty. And the one with the contest and his wife was just hilarious. I told him she would give Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune a run for her money.

Welcome to Lumberjocks and a pleasure to meet you by the way.

I was looking for information on (wood) :-) routers, but through the website comment on the shirt I learned of Marc! Really enjoy his work, and especially the fact that he doesn’t take himself so seriously…we need more of that in the world…

When Marc announced the winners of the latest LumberJock contest, I clicked on the link and came here. I am glad I did.

I found out through the Wood Whisperer as well. His videos are great, and he also led me to Matt’s Basement workshop as well. He is a great asset to woodworking on the internet!

There are a couple others also. Neil over at “Furnitology” . Woodworking Online by Woodsmith and oh yeah there’s Matt’s Basement Workshop . The first two are video shows and the last one is mainly audio with the occassional video here and there. Enjoy.

Martin found me doing my own wood blog last summer, when it was much quieter around here… and I’m so happy to have found everyone else here! I’d looked around and had a heck of a time finding anyone else “outthere”... my how much things have changed in a year!

like scottb, Martin found me. I try not to think of him as a stalker… but then again I’m not complaining he found me either!!

I found the woodwhisperer from being here. Marc’s podcasts are some of the most informative and interesting woodworking shows I’ve ever seen. I love that guy! a totally innocent manly sort of way of course!

the same as scottb and darryl. Martin found me in the early days of lumberjocks. It’s amazing how the site has grown and evolved.
