Just a simple woodworker who enjoys life on Cape Cod. I love the small websites that offer camaraderie and quality.
I have a basement shop that I built 2 years ago after moving into a house with a water view (left my old garage shop behind!). Retired April 1 (April Fool's Day!) and have been enjoying the free time, such that it is. I seem to be busier now.
I was Ellen35 in a former life/site ;-)
So nice to see some old familiar faces here.

Just a woodworker who values a small and talented website.
I live on Cape Cod and have been woodworking most of my life but only got serious about 10 years ago when I needed a stress reliever from my job. I retired on April 1 (appropriately April Fool’s Day) and love, love, love the time I have to pursue my woodworking. (Just a note: I was Ellen35 in a former life/site).

Hi Ellen, good to see you here :)

Congratulations on your retirement Ellen. It is wonderful to be free from the restraints of a job and have your day actually work out the way you planned it. Of course i assume that we will see a lot more projects from you now that you have all this extra woodworking time!

I agree with you that a smaller site has it’s charms, and I have missed that, but my guess is that this site will get a lot bigger knowing what Martin did with LJ, so we will just have to enjoy it while we can.
