Wow….1000 days. I know I haven’t made many posts lately….life gets in the way sometimes. I desperately need more shop time. All I have manged to do lately is make it an unholy mess.

I wish to thank those of you out there have taken the time to read my posts, send personal messages or just words of encouragement over the past 1000 days. I am truly humbled.

I would have never imagined that this site would have done so well, much less that we would be associated with such rising stars, Ethan, Chuck Bender, and Todd just to name a few. I wish you all the best and I am honored to be members of the same site.

To those of you who have just joined recently or are just quietly lurking. Please, get involved. Post a project or comment. Even the best violinist started with learning the scales and I promise they hit a few sour notes along the way. I am confident that you will find encouragement and guidance here. This is probably the most user friendly site on the internet.

Well, Take care, Be safe and Merry Christmas.

Glad you’re still on board, Greg. 22 more days for me. Time sure flies…

Congratulations, Greg. It has been a fun 1000 days. I just can’t imagine what the next 1000 days will bring.

Hope to see more of you on board here and hope you are able to generate some shop time over the holidays. Have fun and have a merry Christmas.

it’s pretty impressive, isn’t it—1000 days.
Some sites come and some sites go and some—just keep getting better and better!! And that happens because of members like you!

Here’s to the next 1000.

Greg, Congrats on 1000 days. Fully agree with you on the great people and encouragement on this site. Hope you get a little more shop time soon. Hopefully will catch up in the new year.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the encouragement. I guess my next goal is to bring my comment count up to 1000. I hope that in that goal, I can provide as much help to others as you all have been to me.
