Topic tags/keywords: searches

It would be great if we could search all LJ in your state and be able to pull them all up at one time. We might be able to build some friendships or if some of use live close get together at a restaurant for a cup of coffee and talk about woodworking.

It’s funny that you posted this as I was just wondering the same thing and looking through the profiles.

I too think it is a great idea. When I delivered lumber to Chicago, it was alot of fun because we all sat down for Japanese food and discussed our projects.

From what I can see, many LJs do not include where they are from in their profile.
This makes it difficult to determine who lives in each state.
It is a great idea, however, if there was a way to do it.

Like Seinfeld’s ‘bizarro world’. Let’s meet at a coffee lounge and discuss woodworking, instead of meeting in LJ woodworking forums to discuss Coffee Lounge topics.

I agree this feature would be a good addition
For now, here is a klugy workaround
http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&q=site%3Alumberjocks.com+%22Location%3A%22+NY+-site%3Alumberjocks.com%2Ftopics+-site%3Alumberjocks.com%2Freviews+-site%3Alumberjocks.com%2Fprojects&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&fp=e193ef282a7e0bf9

WHen you click on the link and google appears, just change NY to the abbreviation for your state.

Cessna: My comment, based on my experiences with other woodworkers face-to-face, is that the conversations always quickly drifted away from woodworking. I hadn’t even considered divisive conversations or, as you put it, ‘online crap flinging.’ when I posted my comment above.

poopiekat, I think you’re talking to the wrong woodworkers. I do most of my face to face meeting in a shop. We may get around to something else after ten hours on machinery.
