Yes William, it is a small world after all. Unfortunately the life of a woodworker is a solitary type of life where we withdraw from the world to create with the love and joy we have with wood. While we crave to be social with other woodworkers our solitary craft keeps us from being as social with others nearby. So meeting other woodworkers is almost by accident. At least this is how it is for myself. While many of us have different talents and skills its our love of wood that draws us together and strive for that social network of others like ourselves. Fortunately the world of the internet draws us together to share our passion and love of wood to share ideas and our projects. Like yourself I to lurked from behind the scenes of Lumber Jocks before joining. Seeking the need to socialize with other woodworkers and to hopefully find others nearby to meet and to share this passion in person. While I have belonged to many woodworking groups through the internet. I have found Lumber Jocks to be a constant source of communication with other like ourselves. It is with thankfulness to Martin for his dedication and love of woodworking, he has drawn us together through one of the best forums for us to socialize with one another. I was glad to hear that Martin is working on sorting Lumber Jocks by location to give us the opportunity to meet one another locally. I look forward to this new feature so that I may meet fellow Lumber Jocks near me, as so many others that have that same desire.
