A while back some called me blabber fingers. I guess that must be true.

This blog is my 15,000 post on this site. And I’m having as much fun if not more now than when I first started.

Been a member for 964 days so I’m coming up on my three year anniversary. This site has really grown in the last 6 months. I appreciate Martin and all he does to provide a site that we woodworkers are all able to enjoy.

I hope to be able to get back into the shop, now that Christmas is over and my wife wants her kitchen cabinets finished. Of course she wanted them finished before Christmas and it didn’t happen. She’s got the drawers in so It usable at least. Drawer fronts are all finished veneered. Need to resaw some wood to get the Greene and Greene embelishments created. And then need to design the handles.

Then on to the upper cabinets.

I hope everyone had a Great Christmas as I did and that you all have a Happy New Year. We’ve finished the smoked ribs and I’m eating some of the last of the smoked turkey, as a sandwich. I’m sorry you weren’t all able to be here, but maybe another time.

May you be blessed in all you do and work safe. Wear your respirator when straying (Sorry, TChiseI just had to say that) Keep your chisels sharp and saw blades de-pithed and dust collectors working.

Work safe and come on back for next years party. Just remember that counting to ten is a priority when working wood.

Karson, I thought me passing 1000 in less than a year was an accomplishment. The best thing about your posts is that something can be gained from your knowledge and experience.

I guess that’s better than being a bladder finger! Thanks for all your contributions, you help make Lumberjocks what it is.

Thanks Dennis. Love to visit your shop sometime but you are a little way away and no other reason to travel your way. So I enjoy your posts also.

Karson, You have always been a great friend to me both online and in person. You have always given me sage advise and shown extraordinary patience with me while I relearn things as well as teaching me some new tricks. I am privileged to know you and count you as a friend.

I hope the new year brings many blessings, especially in you new positions as president of the MDWC.
