What I would just like to say in this forum is that I have full respect and honour to all the woodworkers not just on this site but the ones I know in person that blaze the trail for the next generations to come. I look at all of you’s as a role model. That is where I plan to be is in your position when the generations to come are looking up to me for advice. So I thank you tonz.

And for the ones in my shoes and younger. I also have to give you guys my respect as well. This is not a cheap and easy hobby. It takes alot of skills, time, and patience to do what we’re doing and I’m sure you all have friends like I do that are sittin on their ass wasting time, not going anywhere in life. Congrats on the accomplishments!

Well said.

For me this site is for inspiration.

I also find it interesting to see how ideas evolve. Somebody posts a project, and somebody recreates it with some changes, and that repeats over and over. As an obvious example, look at cutting boards. They took off when Mark S. (Wood Whispter) showed online how to make them. Now ideas have springboarded in all different directions.

When I joined LJ there were 1200 of us. There was tremendous amounts of encouragement and the information was non-stop. While I am unable to work with wood(or leather) at the present time I still look in because of the family feeling that is here. There is also the respect that we have, one for another. I hope this site never changes. It has become a part of my life, even now when I am far removed from wood working.
