I have to say that in my time on LumberJocks I have learned things that I never imagined. The access to knowledge is the most remarkable feature here. Additionally, there have been quite a few folks I’ve interacted with who have become as ...
I just had to share this with you folks because I just can’t stop laughing. I recently got a slab of wood from fellow LJ BlueStingRayBoots and finally took it out to the shop to see what it looked like. After I planed off some of the saw...
