Sorry if this post may break any rules but I figure I’d share some info.

If any of you out there are old Fine Woodworking Knotheads who really enjoyed the old Delphi software forum Knots, there is a new forum out there that runs like the old Knots. It’s called The Burl and can be found here.

A lot of people are upset with the way Taunton changed their forums last year. So much so that Knots is starting to die in members. Knots which was once was a vibrant woodworking community shared by extremely knowledgable woodworkers is now barely active with posts as the software contains too many bugs to be user friendly. Taunton has their forums in Beta mode for over a year of it’s launch and has not addressed these issues in a timely manner. Hence, a lot of old Knothead members are starting to move over to The Burl so that they can communicate with each other again.

Not to take anything away from Lumberjocks as it is still one of the Best woodworking forums out there but , if you want to expand your horizons and mingle, come on over.

Thanks for the pointer.
I’ve to agree with you on the “unfriendly changes” Taunton made to KNOTs – the most frequented W/Working forum next to LJs and DIYbanter . But I feel very sorry to say goodbye to the very best old friends. There are so kind woodworkers, very helpful friends and the long understanding relation has made me to stay foot, though some of the best ones already left.

Like other members, I also like the old fashioned FW Knot.

See you on //

Thanks! We are actually starting to really grow. We now have over 240 members with 200 posts yesterday alone. We’re still a baby compared to Lumberjocks but the old Knotheads from FWW are happy there.

Well in two weeks we have over 2000 posts and over 350 members… slowly but surely. : )

Have your say...
