I have joined more than a few clubs over the years. Some for free while others had dues. These include car clubs, clubs for for those with MS, chess clubs primarily I join woodworking clubs. One of the largest and most active I was in one was American Association of Woodturners where I did shows. demos and had the privilege to be not only in their magazine but one of my pieces was chosen to be the face of their website for three months. I bring this up not to brag but to let this group know that I think this is by far the best group yrt. While health keeps me from being as active as I would like right now,it seems this group truly loves woodworking and helping one another. My knowledge pales in the light of many in this club and I consider it a true honor to be allowed to be part of this wonderful group. Now, while health and life may keep me from being super active right now, my sense of honor makes me ow that as soon as things change I would love to add what little I can to carry my own load..

Thank you for letting me be part of this community!! Isn’t the woodworking community wonderful?

-- Dave,

I have been a member for around 6 months now. I drop a line in a forum here or there, even did a review on a product. I hope to add more soon but health keeps me plenty busy.

I just hope others realize and appreciate what we have here. I like being a fly onto a wall most of the time but LJ makes you want too pitchin.

By the way, if help is ever needed and no one else is around, woodturning, exotic wood and vintage tools are what I know best. I was a lifelong contractor but turning is my passion. Vintage tools, particularly hand tools is a big hobby and interest. I am not so daft as to not see the deed of and truly appreciate a good modern power tool, even have my share of the myself, it is justI love feeling the wood I work on with my hands.

All in all I just wanted to say thanks for having me. This is a great group and whoever began it deserves a hearty pat on the back!!
