Re: ***WoodCentral's Birthday***

Alan Young
American Woodworker in the Ellis era was my entry level WW'ing publication.-That magazine format was deliciously tactile in it's writing/photography and content. Wood Central picked up when AWW phased away. I can't believe it's been 19 years. A good way to reminisce is to look through the Shop Shots and the Mug Shots-So many great pieces and faces-Some not with us anymore. I used to drop in to Badger Pond-another forum that had a huge following-It certainly had it's own "personality" -but it's more "chaotic" activity scared me. Then the "Pond" was drained and it's residents descended en-mass to WC. It was amazing to watch these woodworking refugees swim desperately over here to Ellis Island. It's been great to be part of the life of this site. Congratulates Ellis and all who lurk and post-
