I am sitting here honestly slightly bummed because I would love to be in my shop but my 4 year old and wife (who works nights) are sleeping and my shop happens to be directly below them. I am however thinking about a project that I have been fighting to get started and with other projects and well life getting in the way I have only built it in my head (probably look a lot better if it stays there). This project however has a few things new in it, as I am trying to implement new aspects in...
I have been driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to upload pictures on to blogs and this picture of a stool I made recently is a test of whether I have finally succeeded. As an aside the stool was made from offcuts from another project and all the joints were doweled using my newly acquired Dowelmax jig which I am rapidly becoming addicted to. Well fingers crossed and let’s see if anything appears when I paste the picture and submit the blog
Wow, I can’t believe that 2 years have gone by already. Time flies when you’re having fun ! This has been a fantastic two years from a LJ perspective. I have met and talked with so many wonderful folks out there. I have increased my woodworking skills by a huge amount from all of the wonderful information that is shared here on LJ’s. From the projects for inspiration, the blogs with amazing instructions, the reviews to assist in making decisions on tools etc, the forums f...
I enjoy reading woodworking blogs. I find them a great source of information, ideas, and some personal tidbits that help give the rest some added context. I use Google Reader to read them all by way of their RSS feed. This lets me read the new posts anywhere in the world that I can login to my Google Account (including on my iPod Touch). If you follow even one blog regularly, it is definitely helpful to use Reader as your one stop to see what’s new. Over time, Reader may even sugg...

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. ...

Well this is post number 7000 in 585 days. But, I still can’t catch MsDebbie. This is a great site and lots of fun to visit and browse, and post and mingle and screw-away-time. I’m glad I didn’t have this site when I was working for a living. I might have gotten fired.
Blog entries and forum topics are now taggable too. Tags are becoming more and more important as the content on the LumberJocks is growing exponentially. Essentially they are like descriptive keywords attached to each project, blog entry or forum topic. They help to make it easier for you to find the content you’re interested in. I’ve also redesigned the Tags page. Now it have three subpages – projects, blogs and forums. On each of them you can see the respective most pop...
