I don’t know if this is how I was supposed to use this function on LJ but I understood the “buddy” section of the page to be a way to show cast those on LJ that truely inspire me. I saw it as a way to be made aware of when those I have come to respect on this site have posted new work. Also to make them close at hand when I need a dose of inspiration. I have grown in my work to the point that those magizine plans are of little use to me. I go straight for the gallary. I’m sure my buddies know what I’m talking about because most of those in my buddy collomn use wood in a ways that has made me rethink the way I use it. In short thank you all. You know who you are. Thank you for being my go-to for a charge of creativity and inspiration. You probably don’t even know it but you have really influenced this woodworkers life. Especially my brother Narm!!
