I am new to LJ and just posted my first projects. I would like to respond to individuals who wer kind enough to comment on my projects but LJ will not allow me to respond until I have five post. Is there a way around it or am I blocked for saying thanks until I have posted five times?

Actually you just did respond to their comments. You can post a thank you here or send each individual a private message if you would like.

Welcome WallyBob.

Yes it sounds like Martin took steps after that last spammer that was hitting everyone’s Profile. I wonder if that pertains to everything but Forums and threads. But wouldn’t surprise me if a spammer does 5 quick posts and then goes on his/her merry way.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my Cherry and Maple In-Boxes. I did goof on the name of the new joint used – it is a splined miter, not a splined mortise. I corrected my post – thanks to Ryan for pointing it out.

For those who asked, the plans are indeed from Woodsmith – Vol 31 No 182 p 38 to be exact. I suggest making the splines deeper than 3/8” because when rounding the corners with a 1/2” roundover bit, too little surface area of the spline is left in the joint for full strength.

Thanks to LJ for the forum – I’m amazed at the talent and helpfulness of everyone.
