I made my latest post. This one. It’s #20,000. in a little over three years. So Keith not all of us show up and then disappear.

I’ve had a lot of fun and I hope that I’ve help a few people along in their woodworking. I hope that I don’t make anyone mad about comments that I make.

I’ve learn’t most of what I know from the school of hard splinters. That’s not to say that harder teachers didn’t help alos. They did. Sometimes I was responsive and accepted the points and other times I ignore them. But in the end I probably still learned. Amybe by ignoring them and trying my way and finding that theirs was better.

I love to teach and help others to have a great time making sawdust. And, something remarkable at the end.

Good night and thanks for the fun.

20K Hooray Hooray
Karson, the Lumberjock’s here to stay!
He types away and posts each hour
encourage the makers to give them power
And when the day is all in dark
his typer is shifted down into park
but lest you think he’s quiet asleep
no thought in his mind, not a word, not a peep,
he’s typing away in dreams don’t you see
the next days posts to you and me.

hope your doing well and taking things in “pace”..and will be a maker of many more projects…a good time to think of some projects you want to do and think of the details…that is what i do when i cant be in the shop…sometimes its more of a source of making me go out when i really shouldn’t…thinking of the wood makes me wanna work the wood… sleep tight our woodworking friend, many projects to do and time in the shop to spend….making dust with your favorite wood…and show us the outcome like you should…sand out mistakes or get out the putty…so we can look for them and give us time to study…...but the mark of a master is what we see…....the efforts of god and you and the tree… on fellow LJ…...

20,000 posts, my eyes felt like they had sawdust in them, just thinking about it.

If you type with one finger like I do, that poor finger must have a large callus on it.
