Creativity is so delicate a flower that praise tends to make it bloom, while discouragement often nips it in the bud. Any of us will put out more and better ideas if our efforts are appreciated. – Alex F. Osborn

I know it’s a little flowery, but in light of recent events, I just wanted to pat you on the back and say thanks for keeping this site the unique experience that it is. With over 3500 woodworkers, this is a place to expand and share the great experience of woodworking and you just keep making it better.

Now to feed my Y chromasome again, I’m headed to the shop to put a little sawdust between my cheek and gum and spit a little, scratch a little, and smile a lot.

a great quote.
I just said to someone the other day that the LumberJocks needed a good shot of “spring” to quiet the edgy nerves/comments.. and what do you bring us?? A little verse about flowers :)

Martin, Best web site ever! Not just woodworking sites! Great design and great support.

Of course if Martin built it and no one came, it wouldn’t be much so I give a lot of the credit to all the lumberjocks that make it such a great community. The warm welcomes, skill sharing, and helpfull attitudes are why it has been so popular.

Thanks to all that continue to keep it great!

I’m with everyone else – Martin for President – even though he doesn’t live in the U.S. we can make him an Honorary President.

I’ve been on several other sites and this is the best by far. The caliber of the site and the people on it way above anything else out in the web world. Keep up the good work, Martin!
