If, after you show an acquaintance the results of hours and hours of loving work in your wood shop, the first thing they say is, “You know … what you could do for me?!?”

You might be a woodworker…

If you’ve ever sorted through a friends firewood pile, you might be a woodworker.

I never use the term (But or Butt) anymore! My granddaughter’s teacher said that word was not allowed anymore! Now I choose to use the word touche! Before you say that doesn’t work, I say touche, it does to!
Yes I am a (woodworker – shhh), penalized and constricted touche I only make rectangular forms (not boxes), touche, I am still a cellular materials reformation hobbyist!
