Please accept my apologies for the list I posted last night.  It was sorted incorrectly in Excel and resulted in half of the names being incorrect.  What follows is the correct list:

A quick prayer to God that this site be a blessing to woodcarvers around the world, a click of the mouse, and we are FLYING!

Sunday night ramblings...
Posted On 04/20/2008 21:55:48

Well, it's the Sunday night before we officially open to the public, and I'm just sitting around going through all the lists in my head of what I need to do before The Big Day... lots!


Interviews to be uploaded, some website code to be fixed, emails to write, people to help....


All is well, but busy.  None of it will get done until I get back from vacation tomorrow, which is pretty much a travel day for me. 
Get to "fly the friendly skies" again, courtesy of Southwest Airlines.


In other news, I broke down and announced the name of the site yesterday!  Had lots of questions; more, in fact, than I expected.  But that's fine.  I just need to work up a "Frequently Asked Questions" sort of thing and post it over on the news site.


Thanks to all my great preview members, who are already making the empty shell of this site feel like home.  Without you guys and gals, this would just be another half-finished woodcarving website!


Until later... Matt.

Hello, this is my second entry.

It's pretty hard to type and talk at the same time, especially with all these people watching me!

Hey gang!

As I write this, the site isn't yet even open.  In fact, nobody even knows about it!  I've been very busy preparing a place for woodcarvers from around the world (and even right next door too!) to get together to talk about woodcarving, show off their work, learn from each other, and just enjoy the fellowship.

I can't wait to invite the first few guests to the new site, and hope you like what you see!
