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.
