ABOUT THIS THREAD:

This is, as far as I know, the LARGEST woodworking thread in the world. It’s so big that we’ve had to break in up three times: On June 23, 2014 after 471,859 views and 67,550 posts; and again on April 6, 1016 after 551,606 more views and 52,069 more comments- a total of 1,023,455 views and 119,619 comments- And it continues to grow every day on this third part of the epic thread!

What made the Stumpy Nubs thread so popular? The woodworkers that drop in, sometimes several times a day, to talk about their latest projects, share their tips and tricks with each other, make a few jokes and have a few laughs together. Over the years we’ve had highs and lows. Friends and family members have passed away, new ones have been born, and what started as a little thread to promote a woodworking contest back in 2011, soon became a community within a community. Members have held reunions, for goodness sake!

Not only have a bunch of woodworkers made new friends, but a TON of projects, blogs and other forum topics that have been posted elsewhere on Lumberjocks.com were inspired through the discussions on this thread.

So join us! If you don’t have time to read all the posts, no biggie! Just hit the refresh button and it’ll take you to the most recent. Then leave a comment. Nobody will care that you missed a few thousand posts!

And if you have a few weeks to kill, you can go read the first part of the thread here. And the second part here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/61919

Meanwhile- since this is the official Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Thread, here’s a rundown on what that’s all about…

Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal is an online woodworking newsletter filled with project ideas, tool reviews, shop tips, tricks, news and entertainment for woodworkers of all types. Each issue is divided into sections: “Power Tool Woodworking”, “Hand Tool Woodworking”, “Homemade Jigs and Machines”, “News and Tips” and “Just for Fun,” with a mix of videos and articles that you may read and watch at your leisure. You’ll learn new things, get some great project ideas, keep up with the goings on in the craft and have a great time, all in one place. Think of it as a woodworking magazine that’s free! READ THE LATEST ISSUE HERE!

Want to see some photos from the Atlanta Woodworking Show?

Here’s some of us posing for photos (there were about 30 YouTube woodworkers there, and hundreds of fans that came to the show specifically to see us.)

A lot of people asked for photos…

Izzy Swan

Jim Heavey (Wood Magazine)

Glen Huey and Chuck Bender (This site refuses to show this photo right-side-up for some reason..)

It seems strange to have people asking for autographs, but we signed a lot of them.

Here I am autographing pieces of acrylic that will become a limited series of ClearVue Cyclones dust collectors.

I even did some house shopping, but I don’t think this one is big enough for the workshop I want…

But that’s ok, because there is nothing like home-sweet-home! (And the dogs agree)

Looks like a nice trip Stumpy. I’ve been to Atlanta numerous times, but I’ve never seen stone mountain. You didn’t have any trouble with the law down there didja? My cousins a cop down there.

The law? Heck no! I wear low cut shirts and tight shorts, so I never get tickets.
