Well, I guess it isn’t really a project, but I thought you all might want to see where all my shop money went…

Yes a girl friend then a wife really is a life long project. Met my wife while in high school, she has been my shop helper now for 39 years. She sounds like a keeper.

A “true” woodworker would only notice the beautiful grain in the wood on the bench, not the beautiful woman sitting on it… LOL, Congrats on finding such a beaut!!! (The woman that is)

If you buy a new tool now, you have to buy her something equal.

I’m celebrating my 5th anniversary next month. You have a beautiful bride to be there and a real keeper if she helps you out in the shop too!

Best wishes.

You’re letting a pretty much bunch of males who think a good time is shutting themselves up in a woodshop the best of times (basically wood nerds) know what your latest project is. And look at the responses. All nice and proper responses. I’m going to go on a limb here and say what they’re all thinking.

WOW what a Babe!

Ok, that’s old fashioned.. Nerds remember?

Did you know you look a lot like David Cook, the season before last American Idol winner?

Seriously, the best of luck in your new turn in life. Do it right and years from now you can say that it was the best thing you ever did. I too, speak from experience.
