I just want to take a few minutes to thank everyone for making this forum a success. I love reading it. This aspect of the site is one that we cannot take credit for. It only exists because you guys ask, and answer, questions.

All the best to you all

I’d like to thank Paul for making the time and effort to set all this up. I gave up working with wood a long time ago (20 years) mainly due to the expense and space needed for all the machines needed/recommended by the so called experts. Just finishing University at 22 years old with student loans, purchasing equipment was not in cards so to speak. Now I am in a better situation financially and the desire to be creative and work with my hands has resulted in the purchase of Paul’s book and DVDs. I’ve accumulated the basic tools and built myself a workbench, actually two, one is used for assembly/drying, built 1/2 dozen boxes, built several wallclocks for christmas gifts, a shooting board and now am planning a donkey eared shooting board with the plans Gary provided me. All this in a small 8×10 room, no noise, no dust. It is refreshing to say the least.
I plan on replacing all my manufactured furniture with my own hand made items and am looking forward to the challenges ahead, with Paul’s guidance of course!

Well said Dave, nice post buddy
I agree, this is a world class effort thanks to Paul’s team and great contributors. The results surely reflect that. I just wish I had the time to catch up to some of you guys! I’m still making spoons and spatulas out of oak firewood for Christmas gifts, Nothing to show off but my daughters-in-law like them, and I’m sure learning the importance of sharp tools! Now my daughter would like a jewley box that looks a lot like a shaker candle box and one of my sons a book shelf and …….well, you get the picture. Fantastic!
Anyone know the whereabouts of Gary Palmer?
I know he has come and gone a couple of times, and I recall him stating a couple months back that he was dealing with health issues. It looks as if he is gone again now, his account is showing up as Anonymous.
He was a great contributor to the Forum here. I hope all is well with him and he returns soon.
@crance Gary’s got really bad arthritis that flares up from time to time. I messaged him a while back and he said he’s suffering badly so can’t get in the shop at all. I agree with you – he was a great asset as he was a retired cabinet maker. In his last message he sounded frustrated about not being able to continue, but I wouldn’t count on him returning, unfortunately.
