I just stumbled onto the LJ website recently while surfing the internet for bandsaw box designs. I must say, I am impressed! There are several wonderful projects that the LJ community has made. Thanks for your inspiration!
Then I checked out the blog section. I am a child of one of the first computer generations. I am can find my way around a computer very well and I have said on several occasions that if it were not for Google and spellcheck, I would not be able to hold down a job! But with all of that being said, I have always thought of blogging and sites such as facebook to be well – lame and stupid. And then I checked out the LJ blog site. I realized that I did not like blogging and facebook because they tend to center around things in life that do not hold much interest to me. But I am very excited about learning the craftsmanship involved in woodworking and creating a blog about that passion does seem to be something I may actually enjoy. Soooo, I thought I would create an account and make an attempt at blogging my woodworking journey. Perhaps some other newbie woodworker can read along and avoid some of the pitfalls that I encounter along the way. And if nothing else, perhaps I will have a few of you post good reviews about my newbie-ish projects causing my ego to inflate to unnatural levels!
