Hey happy LJers!

It’s been one year and a whole lot of comments and sharing. I’m so pleased to have found LJ’s and all the wonderful folks that are here, sharing, giving input and wonderful advise, beautiful projects and friends around the world. When I first came across LJ’s, I had never been on any forum anywhere or had commented on anything online. Now I’m an frequent poster. All of the whole group and of course all the old timers here, thanks for all of your help and great advise. If you want woodworking information , world events, kind encouragement, or much, much more, LJ’s has it all.

Thanks to all,

When I first found this site I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it didn’t take me long to realize that you and the other “Old Timers” on this site has inspired us all.

Like me, you’re a frequent visitor. When I see your postage stamp face it’s like someone I’ve known for a long time. And you’re a closer instead of a divider. You always find an encouraging comment even at the worst moments.
