I just realized that tomorrow will be my second anniversary on LJ’s and thought some thank you’s were in order.
So first of all Thanks to Martin and his team for creating this great place to meet friends and share experiences, ideas and opinions.
Second, thanks to all the friends, buddies and acquaintances that I have met here for your support, your encouragement and your inspiration. I truly would never have pushed myself to achieve what I have been able to achieve without your contribution.
And lastly but by no means least, thanks for the friendship to those few of you that I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Life is so much fuller when you can make new friends. I hope to be here for many more anniversaries and meet many more of you.
When I joined Lumberjocks, I was starting a new “retirement” form of woodworking, not knowing where it would lead. I’m still not sure where it will ultimately lead but over the past two years, with your encouragement and inspiration, I have made inroads into the world of marquetry.
Many of you have followed my journey from stumbling around with a router to creating some much better work with the chevalet. I hope you have all enjoyed the ride as much as I have.
Most of all I hope that I have given you cause to smile occasionally.
Thanks for all of this.
