Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless

Won’t comment on each piece, can’t type that well. Let me say here, they are all super! Original, artistic and masterfully executed. You should have a great future.

Randolph – In reference to the yarn swift, my wife works in a yarn shop which had a similar swift made by someone up in New England. I had also seen several other type on the internet. I am told that the Shaker’s used some of these which is one of the reasons I made mine of Cherry. So far it has worked well. Thanks for the comment.
