No problem buddy! I personally feel as a woodworker I’m misunderstood. People don’t seem to get why I’ll buy the tools and the clamps and the machinery and build up my shop the way I do. A woodworking community does. So thanks to you. If I remember right you were my first contact on the site. So thanks again Jim.

Jim friends are a choice that you make in life

You welcomed me as a neighbour when LJ’s

seemed a place full of strangers.

I do believe though that strangers are friends that

you have not met. :)

Thanks Jim


BBQ sounds great LoL

My good old stalwart BUDDY!

I don’t know how you find the time for all of the comments you make.

You must be great at multitasking.

I haven’t been too active lately, I guess I’ve slowed up a bit!
