Woodwork humour

Posted By on September 2, 2009


You know you’re a woodworker if/when:

1. You reach into your pocket for keys and pull out a handfull of sawdust along with them.

2. You ask the neighbor for his used fence boards because you can make something out of them.

3. You buy something just so you can tear it apart to see how it was made and then insist on making one just like it (only better).

4. You carefully debate (with your self) over which pieces of wood from the scrap bin are actually lowly enough to be used for a sacrificial backer board when drilling.

5. You keep telling people that Titebond II  is the greatest invention ever.

6. It’s easier/faster to pick up a new speed square, tape measure, pencil, etc…. next time you go out, than to find yours , even though you “just had it.”

7. You overhead a co-worker mention they just took down (or will be taking down) a tree. and you immediately ask if you can have it. Thinking, worst case, at least you’ll have some firewood.
