...your saved favorite woodworking sites list is longer than the Dead Sea Scrolls.

...your various wish lists are even longer than that.

...you keep the old Rockler, Eagle America and other catalogs from 2 years ago because it has the dogears and red asterisks in all the right places.

... you give the complete Ryobi set and extra batteries to your parents so you can swap to Craftsman C3 ;=) (true story)

... you covet only the neighbor’s tools you don’t have yet

If you’re addicted to using BLO and know what BLO is? (Yeah, BLO not Blow)

Or if you run out of sandpaper and use your wife’s nail file sticks just so you can finish sanding your project.

... the only reason you will never buy a sawstop is because you just KNOW that you will have to do the weiner thing for yourself, then later others… and that’s just going to be too expensive!

... your fingerprints are gone from the Gorilla Glue contest project and you don’t even have a t-shirt to show for it.

... when every tool edge you have is “scary sharp” and you’re pondering the merits for the mower blade, the kitchen knives, and scissors. A straight edge sounds like fun and another excuse to get a strop.

Cool! Now I can show TimK43’s shop to Sheila and try get some bigger tools into our kitchen! We already have the lathe, scroll saw and drill press, and also a belt sander in the closet. Next is a table saw… we could clamp a top on it and it can double as a dinner table!

... you try to remember if you’ve used any MDF since the last time you shook your shop apron out over the grill.

... 25% of your power bill is from shop usage because you keep leaving the DC on because the fan is louder, then realize that you’ve done it again when you go to the back porch an hour later and can finally hear it.

... you hear somebody say they blowed a seal and you instantly imagine that a seal carving got some boiled linseed oil put on it.
