« Part 7: Update on the shadow box Part 8 of Various shenanigans series Part 9: I thought this was supposed to be fun! »

I spend a lot of time doing boring, repetitive things. To make the time pass, I often turn to thinking of really silly things, jokes, alternative song lyrics ect. And almost all of the time it is woodworking related.

So I decided to post a collection of the recent silly things that I have though of.

First, if you have not read them yet, here are past blog posts of my router table and my new bench hardware.

As you can see, I really enjoy the lighter side of woodworking.

Q. What do you call a wood shop with no hand tools?
A. Galootan-free.

Alternative song lyrics.
(To the tune of Gangum style)
Hey, benchie benchie woop woop woop Roubo style, woop Roubo style.

(to the tune of whip it)
If its blotch you cant ignore, you must seal it. On pine cherry and more, you must seal it. Seal it good.

(tune of hotblooded)
Dovetails, check them and see, gotta cut about 103… cause I am dovetailing, dovetailing.

I like this one… its by a band called The Lumber Chronicles. Or as I call them TLC for short.
Song titles
‘No, I wont scrub your lumber’
‘Don’t go chasin Stanley planes’

There are lots more, but I am having trouble recalling them at the moment.

If you have a joke or something silly like this, please post a comment and share.

Thanks, and please, try no to take woodworking too seriously.

I don’t know the tunes you mentioned, but I did get a good laugh from the first joke. I never have time to think about jokes or anything else while in the shop as I am too busy concentrating on covering up my mistakes.
