Well May 7th is my eighth anniversary being a member of lumberjocks.

Lots of changes from knowing everyone on the site and communicating with them each night. We didn’t have messages then we posted those messages on projects.

Lots of fun.

We invited all and helped everyone out of their problems in woodworking and maybe life.

I’ve visited maybe 15-20 lumberjocks in their shops and have made some lifelong friends.

Lots of new experts here now But, lots of people trying to make a dishonest buck by scamming anyone who will fall for it.

The woodworking is good, and the finish smells the same. So happy days are here.

We’ve lost some friends who were a big part of the nightly party, but they are remembered in our hearts and we know that our love was shared through a common bond.

Happy trails to you until we meet again. may your chisels and saws be sharp, and may your wood be ever fragrant and knot free, and always in plentiful supply.
