To all my friends and fellow LJ’s out there, both my wife and I would like to introduce the newest (and possibly the smallest) LumberJock. Nathan James.

He officially clocked in at 7lbs 12oz, 19 1/2” long, born 5:25 PM 8/27. Both he and mom are happy and healthy.

Id like to thank everyone for their love, prayers, and well wishes.

Without further ado ….

Huge congratulations to you and your family! He’ll make a great woodworker some day.

We’re expecting our first in about three weeks. Can’t wait.

Not that I don’t like your woodworking bro… but I have to say this one beats all of your previous projects combined and then some; he looks healthy and happy and believe me since I’ve been through it several times… now that mine are almost driving… they grow up fast!!!!!... Make sure you take a lot of pictures because before you know it he’ll be asking for the keys. Tell Mom great job and I know you love wood working but stop wearing your dust hat outside the shop; hahahaha.

All kidd’n aside I’m truly happy for you guys; the best times are coming.

Sincerely,
David.

What a beautiful boy! That big hand already looks like a perfect fit for a Stanley #2.

He looks like a GREAT reason to buy a Stanley #1 as a starter plane for the little feller.
