Hi to all,
I am fairly new to this forum in a posting kind of way at least but I have just finished a task that I must say has been inspirational, tutorial, eye opening, funny, frightening and sometimes moving.
My task I set myself was to look at ALL the projects ever posted on LJ and I have just finished doing it.
I would heartily recommend doing this, though it has taken many weeks of long nights and the odd bit of time in the day when circumstances permitted.
If you do decide to try this I advise you to start at the last posting and work backwards through them, if not you will likely never know where you started as so many new posts will have been made since your long but enjoyable task began.
You will also learn much and be inspired to create so much that you may never have time to finish the jobs, but what you learn (even a master woodworker cannot know everything) will be well worth the effort and you will also see how people have grown in confidence and skill as the pages pass.
I just wanted everyone to see the benefit of doing this, even if it takes years to look at the projects, as it may if you have limited time, I guarantee that what you find will be of use and often give you ideas to make things in a totally different way.
Anyway thats the end of my rant about the projects and please please keep on posting them, no matter how small or humble you think they are there will be many of us out here that enjoy and learn from them.
Thanks to all you LJs out there. Al
