On June 23, 2014 the Stumpy Nubs Woodworking “fan 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 makes a great woodworking video podcast! But the “fan 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 last three 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 2009, 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 Fan Thread, here’s a rundown on what that’s all about…
Stumpy Nubs Woodworking is a video podcast, blog and website that began a few years back as a way to mix humor with great ideas to help small shops become great shops without spending a lot of cash. We make our own tools, we design crazy jigs and workshop solutions that are unique in the woodworking world. It’s intended to be both entertaining, and informative.
Since it’s debut with a few hundred viewers, it’s grown fast. We’ve amassed millions of views, tens of thousands of subscribers, won two video awards, and enjoyed the endorsements of some of the biggest names in woodworking today. So check it out! You don't know what you're missing!
