This post never made it to lumberjocks from my website, so I decided to add it. So, the last time I blogged. I wrote a post about a woodworking museum in Yerevan, Armenia. If you are a reader of my blog you might be asking yourself, weren’t you just in Queretaro, Mexico getting ready to settle in and blog about your woodworking experience. As it turns out, that once the Mrs. and I arrived, it did not feel right. So instead of telling you why I did not move there in this post, I h...

Over the past several months we have been re-evaluating the posting rules for our site, trying to find the right combination that is best for all of our members and for the site as a whole.

From the projects for inspiration, the blogs with amazing instructions, the reviews to assist in making decisions on tools etc, the forums f...
I’m finally finding some time to work on updates and new features instead of spending most of it on support and maintenance issues. There were some small updates here at LumberJocks in the recent days and more are coming soon. I will write about them in a separate post later. Now I’d like you to become familiar with the restructured and much extended HomeRefurbers Forums: Interior Home ImprovementAre you making structural changes to the interior of your home?

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...
