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: The first part ended on June 23, 2014 after 471,859 views and 67,550 posts; a second time on April 6, 2016 after 551,606 more views and 52,069 more comments; and a third time on August 24, 2017 after 1,805,041 additional views and 25,070 more comments- a total of 2,828,506 views and 144,646 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.

So join us! If you don’t have time to read all the posts, no biggie! Just hit the refresh button and it’ll take you to the most recent. Then leave a comment. Nobody will care that you missed a few thousand posts!

And if you have a few weeks to kill, you can go read the first part of the thread here. The second part here, and the third part here.

Meanwhile- since this is the official Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Thread, here’s a rundown on what that’s all about…

Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal is an online woodworking newsletter filled with project ideas, tool reviews, shop tips, tricks, news and entertainment for woodworkers of all types. Each issue is divided into sections: “Power Tool Woodworking”, “Hand Tool Woodworking”, “Homemade Jigs and Machines”, “News and Tips” and “Just for Fun,” with a mix of videos and articles that you may read and watch at your leisure. You’ll learn new things, get some great project ideas, keep up with the goings on in the craft and have a great time, all in one place. Think of it as a woodworking magazine that’s free! READ THE LATEST ISSUE HERE!

Speaking of smells….

My lovely wife got me a box of Tim Horton’s K-cups (must have been on sale :^p ) and I just broke into it….

Mmmmmmmm….... smells and tastes great.

Went to get some WRC for my deck. Have to retrofit to keep the little dog from falling 8’. Discovered I lost my debit card. I guess I dropped it at KFC last night. Had to go to the bank to get a new one.

Nice new place, Stumpy! Looks a little barren. Can we spiff it up a bit? How’s this?

I made it! It was a long and arduous journey, but I’m here.

I drink more coffee now that we have a Kuerig. I typicall like to grind my own and use a the DIY reusable gadget to make my coffee. I got a bag of Deathwish Coffee whole bean for Christmas and REALLY liked it. Now I’m sad because I’m out. My next whole bean will probably be a selection from the guys at Black Rifle Coffee Company.
