The June 2010 issue of our LumberJocks eMag is now out.

I’d love to hear your feedback on this issue as well as the eMag in general.

Thanks!~ Debbie (You can find all the past issues of our LJ eMag here)

Should the International day of the LJ be celebrated on the same day everywhere around the globe?
Father’s day isn’t
see When is Father's Day

Summer woodworking contest, Father’s day in June, suggestions of bbq’s in the winter...? I guess, we in the physical global south will always have to put up with these hemispheric insensitivities :)

Debbie and LJ,
I’m a political junkie, when I get caught up in all the crap thats going on in our country and around the world I get insane!!!! But all I need to do is head over here to Lumberjocks and read the stories and see some of the absolutely fantastic work that’s done by some really talented woodworkers and it helps me to unwind. Keep up the great work lumberjocks and lumberjock participants. Thank you for being my “escape” one day soon I will get set up and be able to share some of my stories too .In the mean time I can read, watch and learn right here!! Please dont ever go away : )

Corrected Link: Andy's blog about the art boxes is located here. Sorry about the inconvenience.

I know what you mean, Steve. Sometimes I feel that I should just stick to generic items /terms and that I shouldn’t use my Canadian English when typing “neighbour” and “colour” ... I try to remember to make comments such as “for us here in the northern hemisphere” but I don’t always remember. The difference is really noticeable over at GardenTenders, since we are talking about gardening topics. Phew.. it can be complicated. No “insensitivity” intended.

As for BBQ’s in the winter—that can be a lot of fun. Adds an extra special something to the event.

Congratulations to You Debbie. I have been designing and crafting for 29 years now. There comes a point when everything becomes common to you and you feel that you’ve plateaued. Thanks To LJ, It has been an inspiration to see fellow wood workers at their craft and reading their comments on my posts. It has given me a renewed drive to further my designs and craft. <ore power to LJ and to you Debbie!!

Congratulations Debbie!
I am glad you have a mag up and running. I am living in Donegal, Ireland, And I don’t get the opportunity to discuss and have comments about “my hobby”!
I’m not a woodworker, just have a passion in working in wood, and I simply enjoy it!
The LJ is an inspiration to me, and a drive to complete my work!

Of course I am just kidding, Debbie. You are doing a great job and I enjoy the emag to catch up on things I probably missed. With over 18,000 of us now, it’s impossible to keep up to everyone’s efforts. The monthly is a nice way to see it from someone else’s perspective.

Imagine my confusion as I am a Canadian with dual US citizenship, now living in the southern hemisphere. Honestly I still get winter and summer mixed up! Isn’t Christmas coming up soon?

A great issue as always Debbie. It contained a lot of wonderful stuff I hadn’t seen before. Thanks so much for your hard work putting this together for the member’s enjoyment and benefit.

I hope that one day you will do an article on one of the granddaddy’s of all hand tools and still probably the most versatile, the simple chisel. Remember, the pyramids in Egypt were built from stones that were all hand chiseled, not to mention Michelangelo’s fantastic marble sculptures. The ones used for woodworking have been no less invaluable to the history of woodworking. They might be a little difficult to research, but a good article would undoubtedly open a lot of eyes of many woodworkers who use mainly machine tools, to the almost limitless uses this tool can be put to. If you decide to do this I hope you won’t forget the woodcarving aspect.
