Topic tags/keywords: thank you feedback

This is about the only place on the WWW I go on a regular basis, exccept to check email. I have learned more here in the last year or so than I would have on my own the rest of my life. I have answers to questins i didn’t even know enough to ask!! Just thought I’d put up a little feedback for Martin:-)) Have a great day!

I agree Topmax – This site is the one I visit first and the most. I love the community here, coz you dont have to be a carpenter to be able to do woodworking. Here you find answers that you didn’t even know the question!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

Well, I hate this site. It’s like crack. Seems I come here to just ‘peek’ at what’s going on and I end up getting drawn in, hook line and sinker. I open just 2 or 3 projects or blogs. Then 1 or 2 of those leads to opening more windows or tabs. On and on it goes and my mind starts reeling with ideas and design changes for future projects. Yeah, thanks… sortof. :)

I agree, thanks Martin. I start my day with Lumberjocks on a routine basis.

Well, to make a long story short, Martin has led me to LJs. So now I have LJ on one monitor and my stock ticker on the 2nd monitor. The only thing I need now is to move my beer cooler next to the computer, and…, and…, but I digress…

Showing a little love to the Martin Man! Couldn’t agree more, Topo, and TJ, from personal experience, it’s probably better to NOT be a carpenter (too many old habits).

I got to chime in as well. I have only been woodworking for less than a year now and owe a massive amount of what I know to LumberJocks. I have friends who see my work and cant believe I building things I am building at such an early start. I am sure to remind them that I do a ton or reading, studying, and most of that is done on Lumberjocks.

My every day ritual is a cup of coffee, my dog at my feet, and LumberJocks on the laptop. I have yet to find a larger congregation of talented and friendly folks anywhere. I feel very lucky to have found this awesome site and very proud to call myself a member.

I too personally want to that you Martin for everything you have done (and everyone else involved). I know all to well how difficult it is to run a site like this. I attempted it a few years back on another subject and found the amount of work involved immense. We do appreciate everything….. Long live LumberJocks!!!!!

Please add my name to the list of folks who have found this site to be the most friendly, useful and “addictive” place on the Internet.

Thanks, Martin!!!

Martin I also wish to take this opportunity to thank you for this small island paradise on the www.

While the speed of my life does not currently allow me to post many projects or comments (let alone spend time in the shop), I am a daily visitor to here and I am eternally gratefull.

I learn style and techniques unknown to me previously, during every visit and I absolutely marvel at the accomplishments of the members here.

Keep up the good works yall!

This is my #1 web site and the only one I participate in. As far as I can tell, I have traded away some TV time – and that is a good thing! Thanks Martin!! I am looking forward to what you have in store!
