I don’t consider this woodworking blog self-serving, not really. By that I mean I am not writing this blog for money or fame or infamy. I am, in a sense, probably like most home woodworkers in that I would love to be able to say that I make furniture for a living, but for many reasons I cannot. This blog is my nearest and best connection to the woodworking world; I also have an account on Lumberjocks that I admittedly don’t do much with. I sometimes post photos of the projects I make, but generally I go on the site just because I enjoy looking at the project photos of other amateur woodworkers. Last night, mainly out of boredom, I posted a few photos of my recent tool chest project with a brief description of the build and materials used. So it came as a pretty big surprise when I received an email this morning congratulating me for having my tool chest being voted a “Top 3 Daily” project on the Lumberjocks website. I’m not really sure how that all works, but I was very honored for my part that my project was selected. My only wish was that I had some better photos to post instead of the iPhone photos that I used.
So here is a link to the page for anybody who may wish to check it out. Those of you who read this blog on a regular or semi regular basis have probably seen the photos already. As I said, I’m not really sure how the top three projects of the day are chosen on Lumberjocks, but I really appreciate the fact that some person or persons thought enough of my woodworking to make it a featured project of the day.
