I know a lot of people are on facebook, I have been on there since before a lot of people I know had even heard of it. There are things I really like about it and things I don’t. Just like here on lumberjocks. While lumberjocks is a place to share finished projects and how to blogs, and tool reviews; Facebook is a more moment to moment type of environment.

I post my finished projects and some blogs about how I do things, but it struck me that some of you may like to know a little more. I have a group and a page on facebook for my woodworking projects. On the group I usually give a heads up on what I have going on that day, and usually a picture or two. On the page I post finished products for anyone who may be interested in them. I keep the page for just finished projects because it makes it easy to send a possible client there to view my work without the day to day ramblings and rants.

So below are the links to both my group and my page. I invite any who what to see a little more into my world to come on over and join. It seems to me that this site is and SHOULD be about woodworking, and on facebook we will have a chance to get to know each other as people and not just chisel pushers.

This is also where I sell most of my boxes. Friends show there friends and emails pop up saying can you build this or that. It works for me.

Like you, I do both Joey. Besides my woodworking buddies, I also see more of what family and friends are up to. It keeps me in touch better than having to pick up the phone every day and call everyone would. Like anything here on the internet, I limit my time as I see fit. I would love to join your page and invite you to join my own, too. :)

It is nice to have several choices as to which way to communicate and share with our friends all over the world.

Facebook? I have a hard enough time just navigating LJ! I think all this computering is for the young.
