Hi Friends
After all these years of resistance, I finally broke down and got on Facebook,( in reality, my wife signed me up years ago but I never used it and actually forgot I had a page). So why now? I thought I could have an avenue to help new woodworkers buy starting my own group, so come visit and see if I can help with your woodworking questions.
I don’t claim to know everything but I do teach woodworking so can help with many of your questions.Remember I’m pretty new to this Facebook thing so cut me a little slack :) Since I’m just starting and building content, but I hope this will help some folks.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/150954398937756/

While you’re at it check out my updated website

https://www.artisticwoodstudio.com/

Thanks
Jim

Thanks, Monte, I’ve been teaching for over 12 years but for some reason, Facebook puts that I’ve started a new job :)

Same here. Link to FB doesn’t work. It just goes to a search page in FB with no results.

If that doesn’t work here’s the name of the group on Facebook

New Woodworkers Help group by Artistic Wood Studio’s woodworking instructor

I guess you need to be on Facebook for it to work

Congats!!! yes to what you said, Facebook will reach “our” generation. As a woodworker, working with the current generation in the school system-
FaceBook is passe. They are into other photo site’s such as Photo chat and others.
15 years ago- the younger generation left “My Space” because the “Older pepole” jumped onto it….
Enjoy

Jim:

I’m holding-out. About 6 months ago, my resident grandkids (now 16 & 11) succeeded in getting me to ‘graduate’ into an iPhone – from my beloved, sorely-missed flip phone.

For what it’s worth, I’m more into getting off the grid, than being more connected to it. Having said this, the world would be a lesser place if teacher like yourself were to go silent…

Everyone, Do Take Care.

Congratulations. I just joined your group (KC Stone). I hope you have great luck with your group. I found the FaceBook crowd to be quite “snarky”. Not nearly the quality of people here at Lumberjocks. I hope your experiences are better than mine. Your website is very nice….I enjoyed paging through it.
