Browsing Lumberjocks' Woodworking Shops..... - 77 replies
Even though I’ve been on this site for over a year (and probably on it every day…..more than once) I’ve only recently started looking in the Shops tab at the top of the page.

Need Help on project. (part two)...... - 2 replies
Thanks everyone for all the help with my last forum topic – trying to figure out a design for a chiropractic adjusting table. You guys came up with a lot of good points, and at the end I just realized that it wasn’t going to work (atleast not for now). Even though I liked how the last design looked, I think this will be a lot stron...

Need help on project. Joinery...... - 21 replies
Hey everyone. For those that dont know, I am going for my doctorate in chiropractic (unfortunately that means hardly any time for woodworking…except at night in my dreams).

Search Function - 11 replies

When you search for a project you get a huge list of descriptions of each project, which means you have to click on each description to see what it is, what it looks like, etc, etc. Maybe I’m missing something, and there is a way, but i’m not see...
