One year ago today I joined Lumber Jocks with the expectation that it was just another woodworking site. Within one day I had received 8 welcome messages from different members. I expected to get the usual
automated welcome message from the site but to have actual people welcoming me aboard made it clear that this was not just another site that I would probobly soon forget. Then I started posting projects and
getting even more feedback. I was hooked, LJs had become my primary woodworking site and the only one I go to on a daily basis. LJs has been a very educational, inspirational, and entertaining experience and I’d like to thank all Lumber Jocks for making it so.

Thanks!

P.S. Today also happens to be my 48th birthday.

I’ll bet if you had to start all over again you could not have picked a better woodworking site! Congratulations on reaching both milestones.
