I am a beginning woodworker with a lot of heart. Looking to learn more from this site.
I might just provoke a little thought here and there, nothing personal.

woodnutbutter, you seem to have an axe to grind and are using LJ as your grinding stone. You self proclaim to be a beginning woodworker ”with a lot of heart”. It seems pretty heartless to focus on posts which aparently ‘disturb’ you. Show a little self restraint and don’t click on sites that clearly, from the title, are more than likely to ‘disturb’ you. If you are really ”Looking o learn more from this site”, then you can take the fact that I am blocking you as an indication that your behaviour from the mere 22 days you’ve been here is not generally acceptable.

No projects, no blogs, no reviews, no forum topics, no buddies. Just fodder so far. I can’t seem to figure out your purpose here on LJ. You sure know how to make friends fast.

I wish you well in your woodworking.

Well “rance” or should I spell it “RANTS”.....
I am not disturbed by anything. I am concerned about professed Christians trying to win favor from their savior(?) by making crosses. It could be you are wanting favor by social acceptance from other people. Or it could be that you are doing it for monetary reason. Maybe all the above.
Blocking me is a sure indication of your immaturity…..make your rant, then avoid the response; typical christian who is not confident enough to support their belief.

All of what you posted to me is in error. Apparently you missed church the day they talked about bearing false witness against they neighbor. I have not made fodder so far. By the way, be a man and say shit, not fodder.

From the look of your behavior, my behavior is quite mild. LJ’s is full of controversy, case and point.
Interesting that you didn’t bother to answer the question…..would you make an electric chair in these modern times.
When it comes to woodworking, I make you look like a toddler. I’ll post projects when I’m ready and have time.

Welcome to LJ’s it is always good to see another female member on here. It is a fantastic place to learn and gain inspiration. People are very helpful and willing to share their knowledge with you openly on pretty much anything woodworking related that you can imagine. That atmosphere is one that I think that LJ has worked very hard to foster and it is for that reason that I continue to be on this site. Now it is true that I am not as active as I probably should be in posting projects of my own, but I spend a lot of time looking at others projects and blogs, sometimes making comments and reading up on how people are accomplishing the fabulous creations that they are churning out and posting here. I really hope that if you are interested in learning about woodworking that you utilize the LJ site to its potential.

I do have a few comments to add though, about your online persona that you are creating here in this community. As I mentioned, one of the reasons that I like this site as opposed to some others out there is that the atmosphere is generally supportive and friendly and people seem genuinely interested in the process of sharing knowledge and learning new things – related to woodworking. Yours was the first ever comment that I read (on Chuck’s table) that I actually was offended by. Because it was mean spirited. Because there was no reason for it. And because that is a beautiful table. Many of us use well known artists and fellow LJ’s as inspiration. We try to cite that inspiration where ever we can. We all take a bow for our work and point a finger at those who helped us with our vision for the finished piece. That is how it is done here. Perhaps you didn’t know because you are new to woodworking and LJ’s.

Irked by your comment and intrigued by the response it garnered on the thread (now removed, as it should have been) I went and read through your profile. You have been busy in the last month since you joined. Busy trying to create a conversation that is near and dear to me. I am a non-believer. I went to the Reason Rally. I have read Dawkins and Hawking and know all of the words to Tim Minchin’s songs. I have an ax to grind. I have long conversations over wine with my secular friends and my religious friends about my beliefs and their beliefs. It is one of my favorite recreational activities. There is an abundance of people on LJs that make crosses, have scripture in their signature and have god in their quotes. I have noticed it. And sometimes it rubs me the wrong way. But it is the way that they choose to express themselves and that part of their identity that is important to them. Just as I have done with by including Maslow’s quote in my signature. Just as you have the right to do. But my problem is both in your choice of forum and your approach. If you want to have a discussion on religion, then find an appropriate site to do that (I can suggest several) or save it for the forums, which is where off-topic thoughts and ideas are supposed to be discussed. Don’t post repeated incindiary comments on projects that feature crosses and then sit back and act like you were just asking an innocent question. You have an agenda. I get it. Really, I do. But this is not the appropriate place for it. That is not why we are here. We are here to help and support each other to become better at woodworking. If you make friends along the way, more the better. But we try not to make enemies. You are “harshing my mellow” as my teenager often says to us, and I think there are a lot of others who would agree. So please…relax, take a deep breath, find a quote that expresses how you feel about your religious or political beliefs and put it in your signature (and if anyone picks a fight, let them have it with both barrels), and try to learn something from the great gathering of talent that is LJ’s, regardless of where they come from or what they believe.

Because if you feel like a minority as an atheist in a predominately Christian nation wait until you try being a woman in woodworking.
