Tomorrow will mark my first lumberjock birthday so i wanted to extend my gratitude out to everyone that makes this a special place. I consider this website and all of you to be my mentor. If i hadn’t found this site i’m not sure if i would have had the opportunity to further my skills and knowledge in wood working. This place has also give me a great amount of confidence in trying new things because no matter how frustrating something is or how confused i might be i know i can always turn to everyone here for answers and suggestions. Thanks to everyone for giving me the ability to have a life long hobby that keeps me thinking and tinkering.
