I WANT TO CELEBRATE MY BEING A LUMBER JOCK for 2 years here today, and i want to post some of the best moments over! the past two years…i have created over 50 projects to date since then, and i want to thank martin for this wonderful web site, ive made wonderful friends and this site has inspired me to try to become a better wood worker…i love lumber jocks and look forward to the next coming years…here are three pictures of me in my glory days…LOL… you old timers will remember when the grizzman got crazy and tried to bring some laughter into the mix…! then i was inspired by a great fellow jock…AUTUMN to make what i think is one of my best projects, my new work bench

Then lumber jocks went through some tough times and i promised in my own creative way that i would not leave and posted this crazy moment

So happy 2 years to me and a heart felt thank you to all of my wonderful lumber jock friends here who have brightened my life from there’s and here i shall leave this poem for this event in my life as a lumber jock

lumberjocks came to me when life had me down, i was in the midst of life’s trials that had spun me around, then came lumberjocks and so many friends, life turned around the fun just began, times of friendship soon to be had and making so many friends seemed to make me glad, wood projects began and the inspiration flowed, and wonderful comments made me begin to glow, they made me push on with new friends to be had, and helped me through my tough times and helped me feel glad, so cheers here to martin for creating this site, so many good things have come , his choice had to be right, miss Debbie signed on and made the difference each day, and with everyone’s help it gave us all a pay day…

friendship, and love have paved the way, here on lumber jocks each and every day, we have this great place for our wood work and friends…i hope it continues and never ends, cheer’s to us all for wood working is great…lets keep this site let us celebrate.
