Default The Collective Knowledge On Our Forum

No doubt that most of, not all of the members of this forum that have been on the forum for any length of time at all have at one time or another just marveled at the collective knowledge of all of the member that ake up the forum.

I doubt if there is much of anything about wood working that is not known by one or more of the members. But the knowledge that I am thinking about does not stop at woodworking, but rather is spread over a very wide range of subjects.

And then there is the issue of a person coming up with a question that does not readily have an answer or a solutun to. I suspect that if such a question were asked on the forum, that eventually a satisfactory answer would emerge.

Of course that answer might well also bring controvery due to the huge array of thinking that eisists among the member. These difference in thinking is, in it's own way, lwhat makes the forum so great, if great is right workd to use here.

Anyway, in that I am in the shop and thinking of thigss to post on the forum, I can post some of my thinking as long as I can disciplie myself to stay within the boundaris of what is admissible. By now I suspect that the members that hae come to know me realize that I do have an active or analitacal mind that often get a bit quirky but sometime does create some interesting things to talk about, at least I hope so.

The good thing is that while some of my questions and thinking does raise eye browere, for the most part, not only am I tolerated, but from the responses that I recently received, I know that I am respected and what can a man ask for other than respect from his peers.

Point being, THANKS FOLKS FOR YOUR WARM WELCOME BACK.

I can assure you Jerry that so long as the two subjects that are banned from the forum are never mentioned, you will have the respect of all members.

I like the totally random chat thread for free form-posting among friends. Often times, we skirt the forbidden topics, but are darn careful to not be offensive. Go to that thread for random topics. My favorite questions are ones that require thinking about a method or choice of method, or how to improve a project or process. I like the process of problem solving. It's often the first post I open.

Apparently not and now it's too cold again.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Give up hope, all ye who enter here. An addiction to hope will kill off your fun better than meeting an old girlfriend who has let herself go.

Hope begins with the letter H, which comes just before the letter I, which is the beginning letter of the word I********n, a word I choose to no longer use around a certain Canadian.
