You know you’re a woodworker if/when:
1. You buy your wife her own tools so yours don’t leave the shop so you know they are in there someplace…
2. Your scrap dictates what project you build next.
3. The salesman from hardware store calls to see if you are OK because you haven’t been in for a couple weeks.
4. You save the first shaving from a plane you’ve just made (and write that fact on it in pencil) (and put it in a book as a bookmark).
5. the tool guys at the local home depot call you to ask advice on what tools they should buy for their personal shops.
6. You bought your wife a micro-rasp for the kitchen, secretly knowing that it would make it’s way into the shop eventually.
7. You are oblivious over oil smudges, paint splatters, and holes in all your clothes but you suddenly develop the ability to pinpoint microscopic blemishes on your finishes and gaps a microbe couldn’t pass through in your joinery.
8. You stop and realize that you spent $1000.00 in tools over the last couple years all because you didn’t want to pay 20 bucks for that plastic gizmo at Walmart.
