Probably not a new topic but resawing is starting to get on my nerves…

10) House pets will not hassle you when you start up a power tool.

9) Power tools, power tools, power tools

8) Air mask, goggles, etc ensure no one really knows who did this project.

7) If you leave enough tools lying around, you can use one to reach another.

6) When it’s time to visit the wife’s relatives you really need to finish an important project.

5) Variations on #6

4) Why sweep when machines slide around so easily with enough sawdust on the floor?

3) Some people have “factory seconds” – I have prototypes.

2) Some people go shopping but woodworkers devote time to the nearest temple – Rockler, Woodcraft, HD, Lowes.

1) Even the worst projects make good firewood.

Wife comes in the shop and I turn on my planer and pretend I don’t recognize her. :)

I love woodworking because when you finish a project, you have something.. not just a movie stub or a golf score card.r
