Well Lumberjocks, It doesn’t seem possible that I have been a member for only one year. By the way, Thanks Beaurecrat for the heads-up and kind words! I say ONLY one year because I have never had a year in my life where I have made so many new friends.
Scotsman; who thinks outside the box and forges ahead in spite of his disability.
Charles; who we’ve watched set up his shop, collect tools and complete projects that his mother proudly displays.
Gary; what more can I say about his craftsmanship and unselfish sharing about his methods of work.
Junji; my Japanese pal who’s projects run the gamut, thanks for introducing us to your family.
Of course there are others, many others, who have influenced me and will continue to do so. Thanks to you all for allowing me to join, participate and I consider you all to be my friends. Woodworking…...who, other than Martin, would have thought it could traverse the continents, political and language barriers and bring us all together in a common goal….....respect for each other through woodworkiing. I consider myself honored to be called a LUMBERJOCK!

Happy Aniversary Newton. Whatever you have said is true and we have really gathered true friends. I request Martin to arrange an international gathering so that we have chance to meet each other.
