I don’t know about any one else but, I often role the dice and look at the projects that our community has made and are in awe at some of them. Granted some of you are pros but sometimes you can’t tell the difference. It’s a great place to look for ideas and advise. This site has got the bug back in me for almost a year now. So, I have started my plans on redoing garage shop this winter and will try to get some small projects done as well. I’m glad to be a part of this whole site.

I agree. The projects (and advice) here are second to none.

This site will certainly keep a person humble.

Sometimes I’ll post a project, and I’ll start to think I’m pretty good when all the nice comments start coming in. Then someone will post a project that is light-years ahead of my skill level, and I am brought back down to earth in a hurry. :-)

It’s an insteresting mix of humility and inspiration. Looking at some of the projects literally takes your breath away; the beauty, the design, the technical skills. I know that my skills have progressed a lot simply by being on this site and being encouraged, both explicitly and implicitly, to do more. I’ve tried things I never would have considered had I not seen them demonstrated and explained here. And, you can’t beat the people here. So, Bob, get the shop in order and have at it.

You find or rediscover, some very nice projects when you roll the dice.

I think I finally found they right place for inspiration and learning. When I read the posts of others who have been members for hundreds of days with thousands of posts say they are still amazed at what they read here, I know I will be spending many hours exploring LumberJacks. Many other sites and blogs seem to wear out after a while with nothing much new being posted and the same people repeating the same ideas again and again. Thanks everyone for making LJ look like an exciting place to return to. Cheers!
