Okay…I might not be the worst LJ ever but it has been years since I’ve been on this site. I got a new job a few years back and have been less focused on woodworking and more focused on paying bills…lol. I’m looking at the projects that I have posted and am in complete awe that the truck I built for my 18 month old son is now on the shelf in my 6 year old’s bedroom…yes same kid. Or the small bookshelf I build for my 4 year old daughter is still hanging on the wall of my soon to be 10 year old…YIKES! Boy time has gone so quickly. Thank you LJ for keeping my profile open and not deleting my stuff. I truly love making things for people and this is a great place to keep everything together. I’ll have to come up with a new project just so I can post some more stuff! Happy woodworking!

Welcome back!

I think this is a perfect opportunity for all LJs to air the laundry. Go ahead and tell us who you think the worst LJ ever is.

I’ll start.

-- Support woodworking hand models. Buy me a sawstop.

New Job? focused on paying bills?

Thats got to be the most lame excuse I have ever heard for not enjoying yourself.

Go into your wood stash find the biggest lump of wood you can, hold it in the present arms position and then draw it back sharply over the head repeating, ” I am going to make something nice out of this piece of wood” then go do it before you loose conciousness!!
Welcome back also!.......I am off to check out your posts

Edit after reading posts

That piece of timber you have been using to see the stars with ,....its time now to turn it into golf tees.
tee hee …..Oh how sick !!!

I hated it when work got in the way like that, so I retired. I heartily recommend it.

Worst LJ ever? Not even. Now if the truck you mentioned was on your shop shelf, and the book case still on your work bench, both unfinished that may be different. I too have the bills but the relaxation i get from wood working makes it all worth while. Even if I only get 15 minuets in the shop, I’ll take it. Welcome back, look forward to seeing projects! Your table saw sled is awesome!

Whew, I thought I was going to see my picture when I opened this…
