I put up this legitimate (finished and made of wood), yet lame project to see if it would hit the DT3. I think it made it to 11. I would have had a good laugh at DT3! I should have added the word ‘jig’ to the title. Link to project [link]
View on YouTube A pared down portion of a recent video by John Heisz. Someone in the comments of his video suggested putting Yackety Sax behind the video. One section made me laugh harder than I have in a while, so I vowed to make what you see here to share. Apologies to John Heisz.
Why is this in any way funny? Simply because in the subject line, the word ‘ion’ means ‘something’ in Esperanto. The subject line in English would read ‘I made ‘something’ out of wood!’ Cue the laugh track [link] This is my first ‘project’ made with my scroll saw.

Armed with a bag (which was quickly forgotten) she got to work, wrecking a few hours of havoc in the store (and my psyche). About 2 hours in, we got to the dresser section. While I was there, a husband and wife couple were “cordially” debating over the stained or laminate venee...
Did you here about the guy at the sawmill who had the whole left side of his body cut off? Don’t worry, he’s all right. Did you hear about the woodworker who died when he fell into a vat of varnish? It was a terrible end, but a beautiful finish Not a joke you tell, but rather, one you play. You look wistfully into the blue sky and say “hey! dad will be on the plane by now” Your companion will invariably ask “where’s he going?” You respond ...
This one is priceless. A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down th...
