Hello fellow woodworkers. I love . Trouble is that I love it so much that I have been through almost the whole site and now I need more food to fuel my desire. Are there other sites out there that you would recommend that would provide even more eye candy and a great community of woodworkers? Also are there any of you in the Seattle are that know of or would be interested in forming a sort of club or group that would like to get together once a month or so to get together and talk shop?

The Wood Whisperer
The Renaissance Woodworker
Matts Basement Workshop
The Bois Shop
Half Inch Shy

These are probably my top five. The Wood Whisperer and the Renaissance Woodworker both have pay sites that are also available.

I love it here, too, Brian. I’ve explored other online woodworking communities and I believe this is the best of the best, but if there was a runner-up, it would have to be Also Taunton (publisher of Fine Woodworking magazine) has a forum. It’s nowhere near as robust as this one, but the quantity and quality of community members is excellent.

Search your heart out. A lot of guys (me included) have blogs. I have some videos on mine. If you like videos and creative weekend projects check out Woodworking for Mere Mortals.

There ARE NO other woodworking sites! What are you trying to pull? Are you really Christopher Schwarz in disguise trying to sway us over to Shame on you…

I think that woodnet forums is my second choice for information and discussion. Lj’s is easier to post pictures and has a ‘nicer’ format. I check out both every day. I also check out sawmill creek and wood central.
