Just keep looking at stuff till you get drowsy and can’t stay awake any longer. Then you’ll be all set until the next day.

Actually this site has been good for business on some occasions, like one time I needed some advice on a finish for a Spalted Pecan dining table, the input I recieved from LJ’s was great and the table came out real nice and sold for over 3K. Also it is good for sparking ideas in your head, Alot of times I look at a project and think to myself “Oh Yeah” thats the way you do it…

Be Well and stay awake :)

ADDICT????????? You can’t be an addict yet. You’ve only been here for 3 days…............LOL

I’ve learned so much here and am very thankful for all the Lumberjocks that have helped me. I’ve gotten so many ideas and hopefully have helped others in their woodworking endeavors. This is the bestest site on the internet.

TRY to limit my time here. Doesn’t work real well. haha

The benefits of this site are tremendous. The amount of knowledge and skill here is stagering. And everyone is allways so helpfull. Have learned a LOT more in the 11 months I have been here then I ever thought I could. Also found out a LOT of things I thought I knew, I didn’t after all. haha

Thanks to all the “Adicts” that keep the info comin.

ok so what does addicted mean and why would you need a 12 step program

is this some wood work thing that no one has told me about

is it like a bed side table and here are the 12 steps to making it

and honest i dont get on at 3am in the morning (well maybe not in my timezone but yours yes)

in de nile (didnt know we had one of those in Australia

Yep LJ’s is a constant source of distraction and inspiration…often times both at once.

Unfortunately it’s not a 12 step program. It’s about a 48 step program and no one has successfully completed it.

So just keep on a truckin’.
