Thank You for that!

- Rick S…

Here’s the thing, Rick. I paid my dues. I got on here with years of experience and the teachings of my dad who was a very talented amateur woodworker going back to the 1950s. He built the kitchen cabinets in our house in Pasadena back in 1958 that my brother says are still there (a church bought the 3 acre property and the old house is still there). There was much more than that. He was self taught, without the Internet and built beautiful cabinetry and furniture. I’m fortunate to have had him there to teach me.

Back to joining LJ, why would anyone take me on my word if I had nothing to back it up? I knew what I was talking about, but why would you believe me? Based on what? Just because I said it? I could have been a complete poseur.

I’ve taken the time to document my work since then. And I have taken the time and effort to document things I’ve discovered in blog posts. I have one coming up on a fool proof method of setting up the Incra I-Box box joint jig in only two cuts.

So, instead of crying about me questioning your lack of credentials, go make some. I did.

P.S. Do some reviews, too. I see LJ as a community. It’s awesome and needs to be fed and nurtured to keep it growing. Projects, blogs and reviews accomplish that.
