Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving

It is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the states and I have found myself in a retrospective state of mind.  I have a lot to be thankful for.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to go into some long winded list of what I’m thankful for, but focus on just one.

I started this blog about a year and a half ago with no idea if I had anything to add to the woodworking world.  Lets face it, my designs are far from mainstream, I use unconventional techniques and my finishing is far from the standard.  That’s not to mention the fact that I try to use “home center” lumber as much as I can.  Oh, and I design based upon proportions not dimensions.  Now that I list it all out, I’m surprised anyone reads my blog. 😉

But the support from the on-line community has been unbelievably positive and encouraging.  In the beginning my hope was to inspire others to get out in the shop and make something.  I think that has happened and its those comments that really hit me.  What I didn’t fully anticipate is how much your support would inspire me. The overwhelming support and encouragement inspires me to be better.  A better designer, a better woodworker and a better writer.  That last one is a real challenge!  Hopefully I can rise to the challenge and add something of worth to the woodworking world.

So let me express a heart felt THANK YOU to all of you that support and encourage me on this blog.  I doubt that you will ever know just how much it truly means to me.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy thanksgiving
    I really enjoy reading your blog
    The use of ” home centre” timber and straight forward projects makes it accessible to those of us at the beginning of our woodworking journey

    Thank you for this great blog; it is one of my favourites. Looking at your gallery, you have been really productive. I like your sketches. Great ideas like the fixed width mortise guauge etc.

If you don't comment this is just a fancy way for me to talk to myself.
