Just having some fun with woodworking, that makes me laugh without making an opps! This guy is really putting his foot in his mouth. I know that I have said the wrong thing at the wrong time. Sometimes it feels good to laugh at yourself or someone you know that should have put their foot in their mouth. This is a good example. I hope I made you laugh or smile. Happy Woodworking.

Quite a departure from your usual work, Dennis, but every bit as amazing!

Hey Dennis,
That looks like a lot of Boullishness to me.
It’s good to have fun and it’s great to make people smile.
I think you’ve done a lot of both here.
I’m smiling right now.

We can tell that you’re having fun! What an amuzing departure from your “serious” stuff, but the workmanship looks pretty “serious,” too! Wonderful craftsmanship, as usual!

Quite amusing! You’re quite the cartoon illustrator. That’s still an incredible amount of work and technique involved. Maybe you need some commissions to keep you out of the street (or playground).

Dennis, now that is a great character. Your craftsmanship is your usual (stellar). I just can get lost in the piece of wood you used for the background. So much movement.Well you definitely made me smile!!!
