We should’ve had this about what you can make from your old Christmas tree…

Hmmm… Do you think my wife would notice the new artificial tree is gone before next Christmas?

Today we went to a tree farm to cut a Christmas tree. I must have cut a dozen of them down before finding one that was straight enough to use in the contest!

oh this can go further. If we take the Christmas tree and make a tubafore then make a tubafore into a Christmas tree. What are we going to do for Easter?

Is that your entry Stumpy? It looks like you carved a piece of tubafore to look like a huge stack of tubafores.

Brilliant!

Dave, my wife thought your photo of the 2×4’s was some kind of painting or artwork. Now she wants one framed on the wall. I tried to tell her it would be 8 feet deep—she’s not gonna let me off that easy though…

just saying…<sigh> thanks… (sarcasm intended)

Ok get this. Here was some practice or mistake which ever you prefer. I went a while back and got me some tuba4. I need a secondary wood for some drawers. I hand tailed them and took them apart. I cut every last dado on the outside of the drawers. So they became dovetail scrap. Well the wife needed some Christmas ornaments to give her 12 bus drivers. She is the director of transportation at her school and every year we give them something to put on there tree. So I took the scrap tuba4’s and whipped up some ornaments. Made a bakers dozen.

First they were tuba4s, then hand planed planks, dovetailed boxes, scrap, ripped strips, carved crosses.

Hmmm….I was wondering when Steve was going to release the Iwood version 2? It could be thinner….have your name ingraved on it and other nifty upgrades? Plus, my toothbrush is worn out from my first Iwood purchase…

I was going to enter….but I stepped on a nail on my way to HD – It took me several hours to figure out why I kept triggering the metal detector at the airport? Then when I finally got to HD…I asked for a Tuba Fore and they directed me to the music store next door in the shopping center. Upon asking the clerk at the music store for a Tuba Fore….he kept asking “for” what? I told him about the contest….in between the gales of laughter he sent me back to HD. Well to make a long story short….not one of those helpful hardware guys (oops I think that was an ACE commercial) could figure out what a Tuba Fore was….or who carried them in stock….Mayhaps I can have Steve in Marin organize one of his search parties and perhaps we can scrounge one up. For now I guess I’ll have to be satisfied viewing the projects and hearing how they found the illusive Tuba Fore.
