I have been a member of Lumberjocks for a mere 6 days now, and I have already had 9 different people send a welcome message. I wish to thank each and every one of you for making me feel right at home here. Hopefully one day soon I will be able to write something of interest in here.

If you read my profile then you already know that I have spent most of the winter converting my garage from equipment storage into a woodworking shop. To date I have built 3 rolling storage cabinets and started this week on building a very large router table/cabinet. As of this writing I have spent 19 hours straight in the shop. I made my first ever dovetail joint early yesterday morning. A couple of hours ago I put the drawer front on the last of eight drawers for my new router cabinet. I am truly thrilled. Later today I shall build the top and the fence. I will try to post a picture of it when it is finished. My computer skills are somewhat lacking, and my photography skills even worse.

Again, I wish to thank you all for the hearty welcome and support. I look forward to getting to know you all better. May God bless you all, and all that you love.

You’re most welcome here, Dave. I found the same warm reception when I arrived here. It’s almost as if there is a welcoming committee of sorts, as you’ll see a lot of the same names on most people’s profiles. It’s a great service they provide. At least once a day or two, I’ll see a blog post just like this one.

LumberJocks, what a great community.

Dave, That same welcoming spirit here almost instantly turned this site from a few minutes deversion into my default homepage and a site I refressh a dozen times a day so I dont miss seeing any project posts. Welcome aboard and I hope you find this place as welcoming and inspiring as I do.

Dave, You will certainly find an incredible amount of information on this site. But besides the content, having been a member of many community based sites and message boards, I have tell you, you will not find a more supportive, inspirational, friendly, and down-right good bunch of people anywhere else on the net.

Belated welcome and thanks for joining the community. Like yourself, I can easily put 12 to 15 hours in the shop without a consideration. There are those who say it’s unhealthy, but to me its just good therapy that promotes a good nights sleep. Just remember to take breaks every few hours and don’t forget to eat something now and again.

Looking forward to your posts!
