Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. Wisty’s postscript is especially on target. Three fingers on my left hand (it’s always the same three – index, middle, & ring) are healing nicely after getting sucked into the tablesaw 9 months ago. Typing is still painful, but that doesn’t stop me. The fingers are almost normal – just some scarring on the ends.
