no previous part Part 1 of new years series no next part

as I sit here tonight looking at all the great projects posted It made me reflect upon the time ive been a part of this great community we call lumber jocks and all the great talented people that I call my buddies.this is a great time we live in where I can get on my laptop and share my work and talk to other wood workers from all the world.it doesn’t matter if your Russian Australian croation or Japanese,were all just simply wood workers and that’s all that matters.this is a beautiful thing we all get to enjoy,but as I look at the swelling number of jocks I ponder the thought how many really participate,and how many join and never post anything.so I challenge all of you that have never contributed to make a pledge and share with us who you are and what you do.dont think your work isn’t good enough,you don’t have tp make maloof rockers or queen anne highboys,just share what you do,thats what makes this place great.so ill just say I wish you all a great new year filled with lots of saw dust,and looking forward to meeting all you lurkers-peace my friends.

You are so right Pottz! This is a great site to make friends and buddies and to share all that we do. It’s amazing how much I have learned here and what I like most is 99.999% of the comments are positive; hardly a negative word said here. You are a good guy my friend and I wish you and everyone here on LJ’s a Happy New Year!

Yeah. I have a Buddy in Mongolia. Mongolia! Never posted a thing. But it is cool to say “I have a Buddy in Mongolia.” I met a lady, with her two little ones, this evening. I said, “I have a Buddy in Mongolia.” The Mongolian word for “thank You” is “Bayarlla.” We’re still waiting, batqub.

Hey pottzy... I don’t know why everyone says you’re a pain in the butt… but (another type of butt)... sentiment like that brings a tear to my eye.. Be thinking of you during my New Year drinks buddy… 10 hours or so before you!

I would definitely echo your thoughts. Being part of a community or a group comes with the responsibility, perhaps even the obligation, to participate, to add to it, thereby strengthening, improving, and growing the community making it a better place for everyone.

As woodworkers, I would also argue that it is incumbent upon us to pass along our knowledge and experience of the craft to others. In that context, we will always be both the teacher and the student, learning something new and passing it along to others.

You say it all Larry. There’s a lot of people who use this site to get ideas for a build and that great, but to be able to share ideas and experiences will keep the passion going a long time.

I have enjoyed this site since I first found it. There are so many people that are inspirations and challenge me to try new things. I learn something every day from LJ’s.

Happy New Year!

Is walnut similar to bull (close enuf… it all turns to dust eventually)?... I’m up to my neck in it!

I’m on lj quit a bit but as I’m making different projects I fail to take pictures as i go along, maki g it hard to post of what I did. Just recently I gpt sick of the dust on my kreg router table and made an inclosure with a dist port and also I’m able to collect the dust off the fence port. I also inclosed the bottom with drawers for storing rputer bits and equipment for the rputer table. Only problem I had was coming ip with a way to lock the router after srtting the height.
I’ll take some pictures as soon as I get back out in the shop after today. Thank pottz for the inspiration and the gentle kick in the butt
