Douglas Bordner posted his first marquetry project and it was not only impressive, but motivational.
The second pen-turners swap is under way and I am enjoying watching it as much as the first one.
Intarsia, veneering, bending, carving, bowls, spindles … All fascinating stuff. I have never done any of it. But I’d like to and Doug’s marquetry just reminded me of all the skills and techniques that I still have to learn. And brings me to just one more reason to continue to come to this site.
Since being here I’ve been introduced to so many different things that can be done with wood. I’ve seen projects that run the gamut of skill and interest. I have been shown so many things that I want to try and so many skills that I’d like to add to my short list that I have been forced to realize that even with Daylight Saving Time, there are not enough hours in the day to do what I want to do.
Now I’ve been told that if I lower my expectations, my satisfaction will increase dramatically. I’m not buying it.
So, the point of this particular ramble is to tip my hat to the LumberJocks here who continue to present skills, techniques and ideas that keep me moving forward in my woodworking development.
Oh yeah, there’s a lot of really good jokes here too.
