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 :)
Looking at the stats, it’s been 356 days. and a whole lot more of a woodworking since day 1. The passion is still going strong, but the shared experiences and information that has flown around has added so many new abilities and capabilities. I want to thank everyone that ever responded to any of my questions in person, or indirectly by asking questions on the forums, that I had in my mind as well, or answered those. there are many opinions between the 10K members, some share the ...
Well it’s been three happy years since i was joined at the hip with LumberJocks. I just never knew anything like it. But, then what you see now it not what was it was in the beginning. I joined – who knows why. We all signup to some web sites at time and then we never remember where it was that we asked the question. But here Martin would send us an e-mail when anyone posted a reply to our question. Talk about something being unique. Keeping us informed, instead of having to...
A few days ago a fellow LumberJock sent a note that my first anniversary with LumberJocks was fast approaching. I’m not that observant, so I probably would have missed it. We have learned more from this fine group of woodworkers in this one year’s time than we have in several years of reading woodworking magazines and stumbling around in the shop. We are truly amazed at the willingness of such fine craftsmen to take the time to teach us novices. I joined a year ago because I wanted to...
Hello JocksJust wanted to take the time to thank everyone for a wonderful year.I have learned so much from this site and I just love to see all the things that people make and how they do it.Even though I am not much of a jock I still love to make small stuff in my little shop and the birds keep asking for more feeders and houses.(lol)Thanks again.Dustygirl
Yeah… it’s party time. Today is LumberJocks Birthday!Our site is 3 years old, or should I say 3 years young? Who remembers those first months? I prepared a small gift for all of you. Internals of the pictures management – that you can see when adding new project, review or workshop – are revamped. I will use this updated system for the planned attachments feature. In addition to this I raised the number of pictures per project from four to six. I was think...
Gee, another milestone. I was looking at my posts and I noticed that today, Groundhogs day 2009, is my 1000 day of being a member. This has been truly a blast and a lot of fun. Made lots of friends, and probably a few enemies. But, overall an upward time being here. Have fun guys and gals and make sawdust, or planer shavings. What ever turns you on. And thank you Martin.
A while back some called me blabber fingers. I guess that must be true. This blog is my 15,000 post on this site. And I’m having as much fun if not more now than when I first started. Been a member for 964 days so I’m coming up on my three year anniversary. This site has really grown in the last 6 months. I appreciate Martin and all he does to provide a site that we woodworkers are all able to enjoy. I hope to be able to get back into the shop, now that Christmas is over ...
