Topic tags/keywords: thank you

Over the last year that I have been a member of Lumberjocks, I have asked a lot of questions and received a lot of right on answers. There are too many of you to list by name, but today I got a great thrill and it is because of each and everyone of you.
A friend was asking me questions about a job he is doing. I shared the knowledge you have gave to me. Well today he came by to say thank you to ME for a suggestion I learned from you. WHAT A GREAT FEELING IT IS.
The suggestion was to use poplar because he needed a hard wood that he is going to paint anyway. Yes this is very elementary woodworking, but this must be the feeling you get each time you offer your advice to us newer ones in woodworking.
I have tried to always thank you for your help, but just in case I missed somewhere, THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY WOODWORKING EXPERIENCE SO ENJOYABLE.
I hope you are having the terrific day I am having. Makes me feel like one of the BIG BOYS. ;-))))) Rand

PS If you can’t see my grin, I’m sure you can feel it.

Hi Rand!

Yes, this place is a great place to learn and pass on to others.

I think all of the work you have done in your shop, cutting everything down to size and to be able ‘man handle’ the pieces around from a wheelchair is absolutely wonderful and inspiring to others with the same handicap.

You should also feel good about that…

I feel good just KNOWING you! :)

As you have found here its good to share the knowledge. When we share we all benefit.

What goes around, comes around.

Oh and if I’ve helped at all, you’re welcome.

RG,Thank you and know that the feeling is mutual. I just love how eloquently you express yourself. All you education has paid off. lol

Kent, So many times people help us and we forget to say thanks. I just wanted all to know that they are appreciated and even if you did not personally give me the advice, maybe you gave it to another and I read it and applied it, I still need to say thanks. I’m almost ready to tackle your beautiful jigs for my shop. Keep on raising the bar, we love you for it.

Dennis,Just as I said to Kent, You never know how many read your posts and learn from them. Just knowing that you got up and walked away from your wheelchair, is a great inspiration to me and others. Never sell yourself short.
