Say that 3 times fast.

Limberjacks have been with us for a long time.They are usually played on a paddle, I haven’t got to that yet.

My helper now wants a limberjill to paint anyway she wants. I have to pay the going rate, it’s hard to get good help these days. She says my workbench is plain, she wants to paint it, too. We’re not going there.

She was also the camera operator on this video.

12” tall. Red elm and acrylic paints, spray poly. Somehow, I resisted the temptation to put a beerbelly on him.

Wonderful!
I love the little Jack.
And LumberJill is quite a little Jock herself, what luck you have to have a helper like her.
Best thoughts,

Good work. I think you have a wonderful helper.
Make her a Jill and then two paddles so they can both dance with class.
Keep up the good work.

hairy – You obviously have a very determined little helper!

How about a Limberdog to join Jack and Jill?

Beautiful lil’ paint job ! I haven’t seen one painted this well in a while ! I would suggest the paddle ! The dance is a lot funnier with it ! And the idea of a Jill works for me too ! I watched as my grand-daughter added a coat of paint to my workbench and door fronts and drawers . She had so much fun with the job back then that I encourage you to turn her loose with the paint brush….just hide any paints that look like they could be tinted pink or purple !
