Please recommend a good online forum for woodworking. As I head for my sunset
years, I may want to finally start learning how to build simple things for my
home, such as bookcases, built-in shelving, and racks. I've always had the
tools, but I've never had the space.
How is it that you have discovered this newsgroup (alt.home.repair) yet
you seem unable to similiarly discover woodworking groups on usenet?
Are you preparing to reply to your own post by spamvertising some
No, of course not. I've been a participant in this group for quite a while. With
10 seconds of research, you would have seen that I'm not a spammer.
Have you looked at alt.woodworking?
By the way, the request was for a recommendation for a good online forum for
woodworking, not for a woodworking group on usenet. They're not the same thing.
The Sawmill Creek forums are pretty good and quite active. They can
be confusing to navigate and God help you if you want to buy a
tee-shirt, but otherwise recommended.
Well, I tried to sign up for that forum, but when I entered my real first and
last name, it said that my user name was already in use. Since the terms of
service say that I have to use my real name, I guess I have to change my name to
sign up. :) It doesn't give me an option to use a different user name.
Any public website or forum that requires my real name and real date of
birth to participate (as this one does) isn't going to get that information
Same regarding my "real" email address -- I always use a junk email address
for those types of signups.
There is a saying on the Internet that is something like -- for the curious,
provide the spurious.
To me, that is just common sense. Do they give YOU their real name and real
date of birth?
