Well tomorrow is my 1 year anniv. I figured I would(OR IS THAT figured wood) show my appreciation to this community. I am so pleased to have found you all. In a time of economic uncertainty, I picked up a new hobby. I figured a hobby that kept me around the house and family, provide benefit to the family, feed my creative and artistic need wouldn’t be so bad. Besides I like it and seem to have a little ability. My wife seems to understand and is supportive. I wish she would support my hunting and fishing as much. I guess bringing home dinner with fur, feathers and scales still on them doesn’t appeal to her. I stumbled upon LJ while doing a search for backgammon boards. I found GaryK’s beautiful backgammon board. How appropriate is it that I found LJ through one of it’s most accomplished members. The rest is history. I love to learn new skills and techniques from others . It is refreshing that so many offer their expertise for no compensation. Over the past year I have communicated with other members, met some local ones and learned a thing or two. Most amazing is the creativity and skills on display. Like many of us, free time and extra money is hard to come by. I have amassed a small collection of quality wood and some tools. Most of it through frugal methods. My goal for my next 2nd year is to post more projects than last and put that wood to good use.
Well I am getting a little sleepy eyed and it’s time for me to go. I finish this post with a thanks to everyone. Keep up the good work. And God bless.
