Cutting board question - 8 replies
I bought a bamboo cutting board for our new condo (I know, I know….why didn’t I make one? Well school has been busy, so don’t have the time, nor the tools to make one to satisfactory…yet). So the directions say to coat it with oil (I’m using mineral oil) every 2 days for a month. This seems like overkill to me. Is ...

There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to add pictures to a project or blog ONE at a time! It takes forever. I wonder if anything is in the works to allow us to upload multiple pics at one time? And maybe while at it, changing the features of editing. If a person was allowed to add more than one pic and had a lot of pics uploaded...

Hey everyone. My 2nd cousin whom I’ve known my entire life (lived right next door to me growing up) just sent me an unexpected/amazing gift in the mail.

However, let me advise my fellow LJ friends that I make it a point to never read or comment on any non-shop talk topic that appears to talk about talking about politics on Lumberjocks. I, effectively, boycott them. I encourage others to consider adopting the same policy. ...
