I just received a survey request from Fine Woodworking magazine about their website. In the survery, they asked how they stacked up against other sites, including Lumberjocks and The Wood Whisperer. I think when a magazine such as Fine Woodworking looks at you as something worthy of comparison, then that’s high praise. So, Congratulations to Martin and Lumberjocks, and Marc and The Wood Whisperer.

I agree with you Russel. Let me add my congratulations to Marc and Martin as well. And, of course, the 9000+ members of LJs have contributed a great deal of success to this web site as well.

I have received their e-mail for several months and just yesterday canceled it as worthless. I guess that means I won’t get a survey.

That is quite an honor for LJ and TWW….both great sites. I hope you told FWW that charging for cyber info was kind of against the spirit of a woodworking forum!

That was a interesting survey. I took it, with the hope they will use the information I provided to make there site better. On the question of LJ’s and WW, I basicly told them they couldn’t compete with the friendship that is found on both. FWW has a great magazine and a very informative web site, but I can’t tell you one person on there that I would consider a friend or friends like I have on here.

Comparison? I’m unfamiliar with computers and computer sites, however in my searches so far, nothing comes close to comparing. I rarely join anything or get distracted from my projects, however Martins site has changed me. Love visiting here and am daily inspired by this family of designers and innovators. One of a kind Martin!!

i quit fww years ago , got tired of seeing spotlights of some guy lucky enough to have dad send him to design/trade college for 7 years , and then buying him a $100,000 shop so he could make a chair that took him 2 years .

i’ll stick with family !
