no previous part Part 1 of Rambling series Part 2: Workshop Eviction Notice (what to do?) »

I think I have all the preliminaries taken care of. Got the profile done, the email preferences set, a couple of projects listed and now I’m in and ready to start being humbled. Seriously, there are a bunch of outstanding looking projects here. I’m confident I can gain knowledge and ideas from this site. I look forward to future exchanges and comments.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Seem as how this is your first day we won’t bug you about not having photos with your blog….just kidding. Someone will bring it up I’m sure.

I noticed that the unwritten rule #1 isn’t posted anywhere, but is still valid.

Rule #1 – No pictures = does not exist in ‘project land’.

Glad to have you here, appears you have a fair share of
know-how to impart to us as well.

Yep, kind of like that big fish that got away. Welcome aboard! You’ve joined a group filled with talented people that are willing to share everything they know. That’s good, cause I need all the knowledge I can get.

I agree with toyguy. It is difficult to get away from the computer knowing that all these interesting projects are being posted. I guess we are need to consider getting up at routinely 4 in the morning in order to have a few more hours available to squeeze in some time in the shop.

Here I am sitting in front of this computer when I should be out patching my roof which was lost some shingles in the tornado that came through here earlier this week. But there is always tomorrow.

Don’t give up the fishing MtnMan but you will find this site is time consuming, worth every minute. Welcome to LJ’s.

Yes sir Blake. It’s AMAZING what I find when I’m not really even really looking for it.

Trouble is all the good lumber I find is quarter sawn (probably can’t tell from the picture). Hence the need for a band saw, right? I guess I first need to figure out where I’d end up putting it. See Rambling #2.

Have your say...
