Hoping those were some nice woodworking tools! After living in Michigan for 3.5 yrs, I won’t be surprised with anything in that book! LOL!

Perhaps the wife thinks she got the best part of the deal! Very funny.

My wife did not find it humorous and said “You better not try that!”

The kids I would trade, the wife, not so much :-)

I heard about a guy that got a Labrador Retriever for his wife. I thought that was a hell of a trade.

I am truly blessed! I didn’t have to trade my husband for my woodworking tools . . . even though he expects me to share the tools occasionally!

Ha ha Lumber Jill,

If only I could encourage Aurora away from her beloved kitchen, sewing machines and overlocker and into the workshop, who knows what we could build, I think the wood dust annoys her a bit.

I didnt realise that there were so many Lumber Jills about.

A lady with a couple of kids dropped by a few days ago asking about me being able to making modular toys.

She had photos of what she wanted and seemed very nice and it was evident that she was a bit on the crafty side, so I suggested she return later and meet my wife as she was into craft work. She replied that she would be more interested in doing basic wood work.

-- Regards Robert

I was thinking about this as I was working in the shop yesterday. When we married, the standing joke was that my husband married me for my power woodworking tools! (That kind of ruins the old adage that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.) It’s nice to share the love of woodworking as well as the love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
