Well, I have hit my 1 year anniversary today. And just last week I hit 2000 posts!

I would like to thank all the wonderfull people on this site. All of you have helped me to become a better woodworker. I have learned more in the last year then I ever thought I would. Your comments and suggestions have been very informative. It has been a great learning experiance for me. Thank You.

I really enjoy seeing all the projects everyone has posted. They have given me a lot more ideas then I have time to do. There are soo many things on my WANT to do list that I want to try, sometimes I don’t know where to start.haha

All of the comments and helpfull tips are great. I appcreciate the constructive criticzm from all. Even if you have never turned something,( or built a box etc..) you still know what looks good and are able to give design ideas.

The freindships that I have built from other LJ’s is great also. I enjoyed our picnic in Arizona last november and hope to get together soon with a couple of the local LJ’s. Maybe we can plan another picnic in March?

Thank you for all the kind words and encouragement that you have shared with me. Not just on my stuff, but by looking at others and reading reviews, I have learned never to be affraid of posting anything. Even my mistakes. We all learn from them too.

Have learned a lot about finnishes. Still need to take more time and learn a LOT more, but I am improveing. (I think)

Thank you Martin and MsDebbie for keeping this wonderfull site full of outstanding, freindly people going and growing.

Keep it up

Thanks for the great comments everyone.

TopMax, I also put this in a blog since not everyone reads the forums. That is where you sent the happy birthday. Thank You

Happy Numero Uno Scrappy, for one I’m glad you’re here, I’ve learned a lot from you. You have raised the bar with your wood turning, just as Trifern did. I see progress with every project you post, and something new and different. Keep it up, you are an inspiration not only with what you produce but the quantity.
