I wonder how many board feet of lumber is involved?

So the combined efforts of all the LJs making woody things could deforest a small country?

30000 projects…and boy is my mouse tired!

Yes, being new here, I actually spent the last 3 weeks (not ALL of the time, just waking hours) scrolling through all 30000 projects. The range of projects and creativity is truly astounding.

The number of times I sat slack-jawed looking at someone’s project and yelling….’Honey…you’ve gotta see this…’ Of course, SWMBO began ignoring me quite quickly. I persevered and got through them all with a newfound respect for this hobby/art that we all enjoy.

Now I have a real challenge: try and finish up the 3-4 projects that are in progress (reduce stress), start building some of those great jigs that I can’t possibly live without (blissfully ignore the stress and have fun), build something that can be used and make the lovely wife happy (happiness by proxy) or try and finish up those home renovations that I started (actually make my wife happy).

...maybe I’ll just clean and reorganize the workshop some more. :-)

The work showcased here is amazing and the community truly welcoming.

Thanks everyone.

congrat´s all L J´s and Martin
I have just try´d to use my
calculator to figur out how
many man hours those 30000 projects
have taken from idea over designfase to
building and finishing, then try´d to add the time
used to post them and others to looking/make comment
but my calculater died with smoke from the screen
and I wasn´t even come to the point where I wuold
have added the blog times used.
and now I have a big headec becourse of that

cheers Martin see if you can figur it out

Quite impressive, but then again, with this quality of a website and LJ family how could you not expect such an attendance and talent?

Keep up the great work everyone!
