Well, that’s up to YOU to decide.

Personally I have only one thing to say that matters about LumberJocks, and that is that it has made me a better woodworker.

Thank you admins, and keep up the good work, (even if you don’t like my suggestions, ;)

It’s a great site with a lot of great contributors!

The admins aren’t too keen on suggestions no matter how good they are. :-)

Administration has made you a better woodworker ? That’s metaphysically impossible .

You can’t please everyone, but I think LJ comes pretty close.
It has been singlehandedly the biggest influence on my woodworking.

I agree Russell, its a great site. I do hope the administrators keep up with the needs. I know as you post more, it becomes harder to find things. I find I often reference my blog instead of the same post on LJ just because its easier. Not a complaint, just an observation

Seems user friendly and laid out well. Lots of help and talent, for sure. Since I am happy with what LJs has, I really don’t look at other sites. There are some things that could be better, but that will always be the case. Plus, the price is right.

Yes, good woodworking sense and a cast of characters from the good, the bad, and the ugly …. I decline to make a list in any category … chuckles everyone!

It fun here!

Not for sure a best out there ever exists. Everyone has different interests. Large percentage of a site contains topics and posts that some have no use for at any given time. I end up hitting a lot of different places (too many hobbies) and concentrate on a few sub forums and then will check out about any thread if I notice certain names. (Then there are threads that I don’t click on for the same reason.)

There appears to be a good diversity of skill sets represented. There are definitely thosel on this site that have remarkable works that I find very impressive. Some guys are very creative and have interesting ways to address issues they encounter and do what I find most important make me think about things. Then there are guys that are very good general knowledge guys, reminds me of a few shop teachers, not really skilled persay in actually physically doing the work but wealth of information on how to do it. They are like picking up the typical wood working book at the book store.

Not only is it the best woodworking site out there, it is the most user friendly for us non-computer-literate types! I appreciate it every day!

If there’s another site that has the breadth and depth of woodworking information and inspiration we have here, I’d sure like to see the link.
