Here is our statement our woodworkers creed, we all come from a certain breed….wood is our forum our fix and our drug..were like some strange exotic bug..we cant be figured and no species or a name…we work with wood for we all like the fame. Ive made it better and with a diffrent wood , i knew someone would try and i knew that they could..saw dust is like our perfume and smell….my bed is full of it , my mate they will tell.

You might see my shadow upon the wall..but its in my shop where i take my calls….saw’s are a buzzin and what is that sound..i think i heard a log just hit the ground…snif snif here and snif snif there..ill find it soon , the smell is in the air…..will it be walnut…maple or fir….the chainsaw comes out, we cause quite a stir…smileing and happy, were adding more to the shed..another day done , more saw dust in our bed.

we lay there thinking what will i make….will it be grand will it be great…can i show it on lumber jocks page…will all the folks think that its the new rave…..can it compete with karson or degoose…or a thousand other jocks who have a run in the roost, it really matters not , cuz were brothers of the wood….whatever it is it will be good..were woodworkers, a motto from maloof…...look at our projects, there is the proof. so here we all are in this woodworkers creed….the best to be found , the lover’s of tree’s.

You are one cool dude, Grizzman… a true Renaissance man! Poet, woodworker, and who can forget… looks good in red too!
Thanks for sharing your poem.

For a Bigfoot you sure can’t rhyme, if only you could rap, you could make a dime. Red dress or no you’re a Lumberjock I think, don’t take this wrong, but as a poet you stink…....... LOL, Just kindin Grizzman, you know I love you, or maybe it was the dress.

Grizzman,grizzman, he is the man, if he can’t rap it maybe I can. Pa,Pa,Pa…..Here on lumberjocks I sit to long.In the shop is where I belong. Need to make sawdust and make the wife happy, because I told her I needed that new tool, the other one was crappy. So I need to shut off this computer, or woodworking will no longer be in my future. UHMMMMMMM.

Seriously well done woodnut..

Between the two of you, I can see a duet is due.,
Don’t do it fast, but do make it last
Don’t be fools, work safe with your tools
And don’t dis the wife or we will all be in strife.
So do not stop, get back to the shop
If things go wrong, don’t stress
Just put on the boots and the loverly red dress.
Don’t forget the fur hat… I thank you for that.
And now I wonder is this all, from the man downuder.
