This will be my first blog, I think a blog must be a thought or an acknowledgement, anyway this is my blog to all of you, about 2 weeks ago I posted a request for an inlay medallion that I wanted to use for a project I am currently working on, all I wanted was some direction as to where I could purchase one, then along came Paul another Lumberjock, and without any hesitation he offered to make me what I needed, I was blown away and very grateful, aside from that Paul opened up my eyes in an other way, sharing of knowledge and the other gifts that we have is really what this web site is all about, I am truly blessed and very thankful for Paul’s unselfishness, I just wanted all of you to know.

Congratulations AGB. You’ve enjoyed the generosity of one of the most giving of woodworkers. Paul is a gem.

Amen on Paul, I am not at all surprised that he would do that. His blogs are an education without tuition.

Have your say...
