I originally posted the following as a forum topic, but decided this would better fit as a blog. My intent is to do an annual update. You can find the comments to the original posting here . This will be a slow blog – only one post per year! Should be fun as it builds over time though .. A little more than a year ago, I found a link to a LJ project posting from another web site. I spent several weeks looking at all the great projects. Finally, I decided to share the Lazy Susan my dad...
It’s hard to believe that four years have past us by since we joined Lumberjocks. This has been a wondrous journey for two people who’ve lived in one place all of our lives. Through the magic of the internet, we now have friends on almost every corner of the Earth. It’s been fun sharing our interests with all of you. We’d like to thank Martin for helping us on this four year jaunt, plus the rest of you JOCKS out there. We started out at 120 members, ...
This afternoon marks my one year anniversary of joining LJ’s. Even though I had read the blogs and such for several months prior to that, I did not decide to join until this date one year ago. Taking a moment to reflect on the prior year, I would say that this site has given me enormous help, including the tips, tool reviews, ideas and inspirations…but most of all the comaraderie with people that share this love of woodworking. Thank you Martin for providing such an excellen...
Ghee this has been fun. Today May 9th is my 4th anniversary of being a member of this craziness LumberJocks.com. I’ve always loved woodworking, but having so many friends doing it, is truly amazing. I want to thank you all for being here and for coming to my party.

Well…today…hard to believe is then end of my 3rd year as a member of LJ’s!!! Hard to believe we are approaching 20,000 woodworkers and I think I was here in the first 500 or so…I have never been the most prolific poster…but I do check in nearly everyday…and at times many more… I was just reading my profile which states “I am a beginner”...I find myself at a cross roads tonight…I still feel in may was like a beginner…with so...
Hooray! I’ve been here 365 days today. Special thanks to LumberJocks Bureaucrat and notottoman for reminding me with messages on my home page. I thought I had months to go and would have missed it! My resolution (do we do that here? :) is to actually create more and get my shop a lot more organized. I’ve been making some headway on that recently, but there’s a lot left to do yet. As my next post will indicate, I’m still in the stage of building things to organize my...
Historically it could be said that I have been known to jump into a new interest elbows first. Obviously feet first is the conventional method, but I figure people expect that, so I lead with my elbow and on occasion my clavicle. Yes I have jumped into woodworking clavicle first. I had no idea that when I splashed in neck deep into this new hobby that I would find the joy of blogging too. I really only intended to write that first post.External validation is a powerful aphrodisiac. ...
Wow that was fast. I must be getting older… Zip… it passes. I’ve been here coming up on one year now. Posting sometimes with comments and projects. Lurking the rest of the time watching the sawdust personalities interacting and gleaning what I can from the many words of wisdom. I’ve made my first woodworking items in the past year as I started working with wood pretty much a year ago when I discovered LJ’s after I finished off an area for my shop.I discovered ...
While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)
