    So the moment of truth is nigh. Only one lucky TDPer, but we're all winners!

    Thanks for the opportunity to join in such an amazing one-month challenge.

    Mere hours from now, the Scattesquire will have a new owner. ENJOY :!: :!:

    Man, that's the truth!! Anyone who comes here is bound to not only get GAS but also catch the bug to build their own. So much creativity in this forum, it's amazing!!

    I'm with jaythebassist posted two posts above me. This sight has gone from casually lurking to stopping by a couple of times a day minimum now. :D


    Happy Tenth Anniversary

    Happy Anniversary TDPRI!

    10 years - how cool is that? I know how much I've learned here in the year that I've been a member and can only imagine the amount information that has passed through here in 10 years.

    ED, you are the reason I found this place. Thanks. I discovered your build thread through CNCZone.com, and I've spent countless hours here because of that connection. Folks like you, Jack Wells, Terry Downs, and countless others are so generous with your knowledge, that it makes this building pathway easier for all who follow. Thanks to TDPRI, all of the home centers, woodcraft suppliers, and tool suppliers get new business - a plenty.

    Got the dates messed up above -- sorry. Tonight at midnight... which will be Monday May 4th.

    While we started operating some during the day on May 3rd, 1999 our first FULL day of operation was May 4th. So, that's the day we've chosen to celebrate our birthday.

    Sorry for the confusion.
