Join us! We’re all about woodworking- learning new things, sharing ideas and making new friends! This is a family-friendly, non-political, no bickering or arguing zone :) Anybody is welcome to chat about woodworking with us. We even get together for annual reunions!

This is the SIXTH PART of what is, as far as I know, the LARGEST woodworking thread in the world. It began in 2011 and grew so big that we’ve had to break in up four times times to keep from crashing the site:
- Part 1 was split on 6/23/2014 after 471,859 views and 67,562 comments
- Part 2 was split on 4/6/2016 after 592,607 views and 52,070 comments
- Part 3 was split on 8/24/2017 after 1,809,376 views and 25,068 comments
- Part 4 was split on 9/3/2018 after 2,630,113 views and 20,317 comments
- Part 5 was split on 11/4/2020 after 715,894 views and 12,927 comments.
- a total of 6,219,849 views and 177,944 comments

And it continues to grow every day on this sixth part of the epic thread!

What made the Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal thread so popular? The woodworkers that drop in, sometimes several times a day, to talk about their latest projects, share their tips and tricks with each other, make a few jokes and have a few laughs together. Over the years we’ve had highs and lows. Friends and family members have passed away, new ones have been born, and what started as a little thread to promote a woodworking contest back in 2011, soon became a community within a community. Members have held reunions, for goodness sake!

Not only have a bunch of woodworkers made new friends, but a TON of projects, blogs and other forum topics that have been posted elsewhere on Lumberjocks.com were inspired through the discussions on this thread.

So join us! If you don’t have time to read all the posts, no biggie! Just hit the refresh button and it’ll take you to the most recent. Then leave a comment. Nobody will care that you missed a few thousand posts!

Thought you could catch my back turned and sneak off and leave me in the other room didn’t you? Neener neener neener, I found you anyway.
Just got home from Griz in Springfield. Danged near a 300 mile round trip, and I am whipped. I picked up a new catalogue, darn near as thick as a bible, but lust is a sin, and I will be doing a lot of that. 60 gallon air compressor is on the back of the truck. Set me back better than $820, and I have to unload it my self. If they can’t get a semi to your place, they won’t deliver. Now I have to get off my 6 and erect a building for it to go in. Gotta make it big enough to accommodate the dust collector also. Boy, it don’t take much for a person to create all kind of problems for themself does it?

Can we put in some new white oak floors? The lime green shag carpet is really nasty.

I meant lime green carpet. Stupid autocorrect. My mother saved my lime green leisure suit, but thankfully it doesn’t fit anymore.

It looks like it eventually posted the topic, but I can not add text to the top beyond the original “placeholder” text. I would like to transfer the photos, video and stats from the last thread to this one, but when I try to do it I still get the BLOCKED message, even here at my office, which has a different IP address…

I finally got it to let me add text, but only after I deleted all the old embed code for the photo and video slideshows and tributes. That’s disappointing…

At least everyone here knows what the old threads entailed. It was kinda hard at times scrolling through the first 15’ or so of the OP.

Morning to ya…..Laundry Detail last night…..and every time I went to check on the washer and dryer progress, more progress on the Blanket/Hope Chest was also done…..one trip to the washer = 2 more mortises chopped, trip to change from the washer to the dryer….4 more mortises got chopped….go to unload the dryer, and bring the clothes upstairs….camera had tagged along…

Not only the first of the Front/Back frames..

But the matching frame was sitting on my bench….so I could measure the panel size needed …

So…how do I glue up a 12-3/8” wide panel…when the boards are 5-7/8” wide….

Need to go and write up the “Day 2” Blog….and maybe a bit of Lunch…

I dunno, I think we should keep the bricks-and-boards bookcases. They’re a reminder of our humble beginnings.

I made it!

I’m thinking the kiddo is getting the woodworking itch. He wants to make a wooden laptop and mouse to play with. He’s been exposed to the jigsaw, bandsaw and the drill press and he knows not to touch them unless I’m with him. It’ll be a little bit before I let him make cuts on the table saw.
