Hey guys.

I’m shopping around for a new woodworking forum. I decided to bail on my current one. Too many posts complaining about questions, with an obsession over post count.

I’m on three other unrelated forums, all focusing on DIY. Current job: home renovation. Current challenge/stumbling block: furniture refinishing. My short-term goal would be to read what I have time for, and repost my 2015 woodworking projects… before asking any questions that might crop up. I normally only post questions if I’m desperate.

I’ll have to wait until I get back from work to read more. Until then, I’m hoping to get some reaction from anyone who wants to chime in. I know how all this might come across. Apologies in advance, if anyone’s put off.

Oh boy… jumped out of the pot into the fire, the exact same thing goes on here. Too many folks worried about post count(they think it makes em look smart). Plugging crap they think you have to buy to be like them. The list goes on, just don’t be disappointed when you see it going on.

Welcome, and people for the most part are supportive here. I’ve got several good forums and this is a good one. I made this one my primary, when FWW took knots and put it in the crapper.

Welcome to LJs, hope you find everything you’re looking for here. Overall it’s filled with helpful folks, and there are bunch of long-running posts for hand tools to jump into.

Thanks all.

I was going to start logging my projects, but I just picked up a few jobs that need to get wrapped up before snow starts accumulating. Can’t complain about work.

Working with reclaimed wood a lot this year. Four projects from one deck I ripped out. Quite challenging.

Nice to have you here on the forum, LostHasher, My experience here has been great. Folks here helped me learn turning basics (along with YouTube videos), how to clean and tune hand planes (still far from perfect) and how to begin developing woodworking skills (Still not sure if I have any). There will always be the occasional nay-sayer, and I generally stay away from the coffee lounge for that reason, but most folks are pretty good natured.
