Thank you all for a wonderful and eventful year here on LUMBER JOCKS .
I have enjoyed it very much and now that I have retired I have more time to devote to my woodworking hobby and finally am able to make the projects that I have been thinking about for many years and it very satisfying and fun .
No more pressure to get things done even so I miss the income that a job provided but that’s OK ,a slower pace and more enjoyment even so quite modest is a nice way to be .
Thank you for all the great project posts and inspiration you all have given me ,its been a good time and I hope it will continue in the future .

Thank you all and have a Merry Christmas and happy New Year .
May you stay healthy and happy with your life .

PS This is our winter scene in the back yard ,sure looks a lot like Christmas .

-- Kiefer

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. I started enjoying retirement this year and the hardest part was actually finally doing it. Never looked back. Take care.
