Congratulations Martin. Pretty soon this will be known as the Myspace of Woodworkers. You’ve done a tremendous job.

I have never seen a woodworking site like this one…it is by far the best on the web with the best members…EVERYONE is helpful…no insults etc. A place where both the expert woodworker and the new woodworker can post side by side and both be respected.

Thanks for such a great place to hang out Martin !!!!!!!!

That is wonderful, Martin. I am sure it won’t take us as long to hit 1,000,000 as it did 500K.
