Just because the world really needs another blogger – ahem – I am announcing my new blog: Woodworking for Mere Mortals. In other words, woodworking for the rest of us: guys like me who simply like to putter around in our garages and make cool stuff for fun.

Come on over and check it out. Feel free to take my pledge: I admit that I am not a master woodworker. I have crappy tools. I could never be Norm. I spend way more time fooling around in my shop than actually building…but I have fun doing it.

Join my army of regular woodworkers! When you get to my blog, hit up the ”follow me” button. Hint to LumberJocks: join now and you will actually be in the running for an actual factual, totally lame-o prize!

Absolutely joining your site.
I follow your stuff on You Tube & it’s fun.
Thanks for making goofing around in the garage shop fun.

I’m in your army now,
I’m glad I ain’t behind a plow,
I’m glad to be a mere mortal,
I’m tired of being a legand ;-))
Not sure how that happened anyhow.

I have said it before. Woodworking is just my excuse to collect interesting tools. I make much more sawdust than projects. I am in for sure.

Looked at your blogspot. That’s a really big drill you’ve got there, fella.

You blogging = great idea! You are one of the more entertaining woodworkers out there. Won’t be long before you are the woodworking version of NPR’s Car Talk with Click and Clack. (you gotta find a “Clack” though)

Hey Steve, I’m trying to subscribe to your blog, but there is an error message where the “Subscribe” button should be…

Fun looking blog by the way! Can’t wait for more.

I just visited your new website, and I just wanted to say HOW CAN YOU PUT YOUR FACE THAT CLOSE TO A SAW BLADE? ARE YOU NUTS?

Just kidding… ;)

Seriously, I like the layout, and look forward to reading!
