    I’m not a member of any other woodworking forum, but I do have a quick look at some others from time to time. One thing they all have in common is an abundance of wise guys, know alls, and people trying to insult each other, or trying to start a flaming war.

    When Paul and Joseph started this up, I was not going to bother with the forum side of things, for the above reasons.

    Well, I think we must be one of the best out there, and I’m pleased I’m a part of it. Yes, Paul and Joseph started it all, but it is all you guys that have made this forum what it is. No nonsense, respect for others, and so on.

    Well done everyone, lets keep this place going strong, and an example to others.

    Great job 🙂 😉

    Well said Ken! I believe that a good bit of the credit belongs to you as well. So…thank you Ken!
    It is a pleasure to be part of a group where no one seems to have an agenda other than to learn from and to help each other.
    I’m proud to be a member.

    Could not say it better, gentlemen. Thanks to all who make these forums what they are, and to Paul, Joseph and the others behind the scenes!

    As long as nobody writes in run-on sentences, and uses proper punctuation, I’m fine. 😉

    Seriously, I lurk on other forums, but I gravitate to smaller ones like this where everyone knows your name (and/or avatar). We are learning together. Let’s keep it up!

    Thanks Scott, I forgot to include that one. It really ticks me off when some wise guy takes it on himself, to publicly correct someone for spelling or punctuation mistakes.

    Give me animals any day. I could and would happily live my life without human contact, but thats another story. 😉

    Ken,
    Well said. And now I have to apologize for spelling your name incorrectly in my latest post on StepJohns bench top question…..I really enjoy the comments on these forum and look forward to reading them and learning something every night.
    Cheers,

    I second the above.
    I have been a carpenter for many years, so I know the basics.
    I class myself as a novice in cabinet making.
    If I can give advise I will try and help. On the other hand I will always listen and take advise. Always something new to learn.
    I just thought I show just a couple of certificates I earned over the years.

    I have been on forums for other interests and have found quite a bit of the behaviour mentioned above.Foul language is another common problem. Now I am not saying that if I hit my thumb with a hammer or get a splinter under my nail that I will say ” dash it” but swearing on a public forum is just not on.
    It should be remembered that many members will not have English as a first language and that spelling in the U.K. is different to that in U.S.A. However, we are here to work wood and make things and learn from one and other.

    As a wise man said ” all I know is that I know absolutely nothing”

    Ah yer all a great bunch! Don’t mean to railroad the forum but I’m planning on building a small workshop from scratch and just wondering where’s the best place to post questions around the design for it? It would be wonderful to get some insights and to see how others have approached it as well as watching out for potential pitfalls.
