    Reflections on Family woodworking

    It been a little over three years since this forum started and boy I don't think any of use who were around in the begining had any idea that it would turn out to be as great a place as it is. It has grown in just what the name implies. The fact that it has become such a caring yet diverse group is a tribute to the members. I am proud to be a member of such a group and want to wish you all the best during this holiday season.

    Amen to what Don said.

    I don't post very often, but I do stop by every day to check in.

    Merry Christmas to all my friends at FWW!

    Don marry christmas (happy holidays) to you and yours, and ofcorse to every one on here that made me feel welcome. After being on a different forum for years that i never really felt welcome at, except by a small few it was great finding this site that i feel comfortable with.

    Don and Steve, I will just say, "ditto" on what you typed. I have never felt as an outsider or outcast regardless the outrageous idea I put out for comments!

    Tony, miss seeing your posts, glad you lurk, hope the new year brings you many completed wood projects!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and any of the other reasons for this season that I may have missed, hope you enjoy it for all of the right reasons.

    oh, HAPPY NEW YEAR also
    Jon

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Happy, happy to everybody and a great big thanks to all who contribute of their time and experiences here. As for all you lookie-loos . . . . . . oh, alright; happy, happy to you folks too . I have really enjoyed being part of this forum. My time spent here as moderator, contributor and just plain old observer is always a positive part of my day. From all the great comments we get around here I would say that is true for many, many others as well. Enjoy!

    Having been the beneficiary of the open kindness, caring, and 'family' feeling of this group I can only echo, and emphasize, what Don has already said. A finer bunch of sawdust adicts cannot be found anywhere on the globe. Blessings to all of you this Christmas!

    It doesn't seem possible that it has been three years.

    Like Tony mentioned, I don't post much here but I do check in almost everyday.
