By going over a good part of LJ members I can see that in a way we are all different and in an another way we are all the same.
What I mean some of us have just the basic tools and some have the best of tools but all have the same thing in mine doing the best we can and helping each other.
All of us are learning even the best are learning something from the novice.
So that is why I call LJ a great place….Thank you to all LJ members.

why take the woodworking course for big bucks in school when you can learn it all from your fellow LJs by asking any questions you want answered. We got the pros right here. If one doesn’t know the other one does.

There is a lot of good info here, but I think if you ask most people on this site, a good course will probably beat what you can learn from here. I’m not saying the info here is bad. I’m just saying that it is hard to beat real life training.

I disagree, hands on is the only way to learn. The classes that you take you could get from a video. Nothing beats talking to someone that knows, that has 20, 30, 40 years experience. Then taking that information and put it to use. If you can’t follow simple directions you have no place in a shop. I agree with Dick.

hands on is great too but the knowledge base that is here steers us in the direction that we need to go
