It is hard for me to believe that a year ago today I decided to join Lumberjocks. Little did I know how profound that decision would be for me as a woodworker. I would say up until last year that I considered myself a self taught woodworker with formal training in design, however, after being on Lumberjocks for a year I find it hard to continue to make that statement. Everywhere I look on this site I have been influenced as a designer and a woodworker seeing what is possible and realizing how each of us brings to the site a unique wealth of knowledge, ideas and experience be it from the novice to the seasoned artisan and craftpersons here in this community. I feel that I am a better woodworker then I was a year ago learning from each and everyone here. I hope that others have learned from me as I have learned from others. Happy Holidays to all and thank you for the wonderful year.
PS almost forgot the most important thank you…...To Martin for conceiving the idea behind the greatest Woodworking site around. Thank you for constantly adding and improving LJ.
