ABOUT THIS THREAD:

On June 23, 2014 the Stumpy Nubs Woodworking thread set a record. It is the first thread that became too big for the internet! After nearly half a million views and 67,550 posts, the traffic finally became too much for even the largest (and best) woodworking community on the web to handle. So we’ve taken the unprecedented step of breaking it in half! This is part two!

What made the Stumpy Nubs thread so popular? Perhaps some of it has to do with the fact that Stumpy Nubs Woodworking produces some great content! But this thread is really about the woodworkers that drop in, sometimes several times a day, to talk about their latest projects, share their tips and tricks with each other, make a few jokes and have a few laughs together. Over the years we’ve had highs and lows. Friends and family members have passed away, new ones have been born, and what started as a little thread to promote a woodworking contest back in 2011, soon became a community within a community. Members have held reunions, for goodness sake!

Not only have a bunch of woodworkers made new friends, but a TON of projects, blogs and other forum topics that have been posted elsewhere on Lumberjocks.com were inspired through the discussions on this thread.

So join us! If you don’t have time to read all the posts, no biggie! Just hit the refresh button and it’ll take you to the most recent. Then leave a comment. Nobody will care that you missed a few thousand posts!

And if you have a few weeks to kill, you can go read the old thread here.

Meanwhile- since this is the official Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Thread, here’s a rundown on what that’s all about…

Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal is an online woodworking newsletter filled with project ideas, tool reviews, shop tips, tricks, news and entertainment for woodworkers of all types. Each issue is divided into sections: “Power Tool Woodworking”, “Hand Tool Woodworking”, “Homemade Jigs and Machines”, “News and Tips” and “Just for Fun,” with a mix of videos and articles that you may read and watch at your leisure. You’ll learn new things, get some great project ideas, keep up with the goings on in the craft and have a great time, all in one place. Think of it as a woodworking magazine that’s free! READ THE LATEST ISSUE HERE!

HOW IT WORKS: Subscriptions are free. You’ll get an email notification when a new issue is released, usually every other week or so. You may also read back issues on our archives page, or browse through the archives by subject using the tabs below.

WHY SUBSCRIBE TO OUR EMAIL LIST?: Email subscribers are automatically entered into all of our awesome tool giveaways! (See recent giveaways here)

The very first comment left on the original Stumpy Nubs thread was by Rex. He was one of the most active members, and a friend to everyone. We all miss him very much. One of our members made this tribute to him:

I was serious (believe it or not) about having “winner” categories so that more people can be “King of the Hill” and add some extra fun too. Otherwise I think that many will not enter because they are not as skilled as some and consider their entry would be below par. By having “gag” categories, it gives just about everyone some level playing field and encourages more to enter.
It is just an idea that I though would may be of interest, nothing more.

I was going to make the first comment, but I thought it would look a little pathetic if I ended up being the only one to post on the new thread. Glad you guys decided to come over!
