I get really lonely in the shop working all by myself. I keep thinking about the shop buddy that hangs out in Klaus’s shop. So I thought maybe I should adopt a little buddy of my own. He sure looks familiar.. I think he’s been on TV a few times. Anyway thanks for meeting my new buddy !

LOL! I did paint him green and I didn’t like how he looked so I sanded his butt clean back to wood! LOL!

Tanks for the corny comments! Love it!

Wow Tony. I remember you said there are no woodworkers in your area to share ideas with but this guy looks like he wants to be boss. Maybe it’s time to make another visit. Lol.
Good job. These shop buddies are good to have around when no one else is listening. My shop buddy Chips, always bends his ear.

That’s really cool Tony, BUT, what is his name. He has to have a name so you can refer things to him, both good and bad.
I guess the best part is that he cannot reprimand you if you make a mistake.
Love him.

That’s a cool buddy but watch him carefully these guys can get into a lot of trouble and can be very lazy but they are also good company and I don’t catch myself arguing too much with myself anymore .

Well I guess I better name him. I’ll name him Mario. I did copy a Gumby drawing to make him, use some old carbon paper and traced out the little guy. But I guess because he’s not green Mario will have to do unless someone has a better name for him. :p

I did paint him green and he look really bad. Not like the real gumby at all. So I gave he a good sanding now he’s naked!
