10,000? No way! I can’t believe that I can talk that much.

I’ve been here going on 4 years now and this is the best site I have found on the net.

The camaraderie, projects, know-how and help on this site is incredible.

If I ever have a question, I know that someone here would most likely have the answer.

I want to thank Martin for creating such a great site! Apparently it has been exactly 5 years since he first put it online, so that is a big coincidence. His 5 years and my 10,000th post.

One thing that really amazes me is that I get recognized at woodworking stores and shows from that little picture in my avatar!

Anyway I just wanted to thank everyone as a group for making this site the great place it is.

Now back to the shop.
