Did you hear the news? Turns out there was this HUGE fight at Woodworking in America and Roy Underhill took out his anger on Chris Schwarz with a big hunk of Iron!
The way I heard it, Roy was whittling a little wooden boat out of a larger wooden boat and Chris came up behind him. Words were exchanged about hand tool skills. Chris took hold of Roy’s mustache and cut half of it off with a paring chisel. Flushed with anger, Roy pulled a carving mallet from under his hat and threatened to mess up Chris’ hair. That’s when it all hit the fan!
Schwarz grabbed Undrehill by the suspenders and began swinging him around in circles while Underhill flailed his arms, shouting some kind of backwoods profanity until he tripped over a bench dog and landed on the convention center floor. When he came to his feet he was wielding an iron bench hook with murder in his eyes. A couple of swings was all it took to knock Chris Schwarz silly, but Roy wasn’t done. Before storming off he let out a manly roar as he tore his shirt from his chest, his sinewy muscles bulging from years of cutting down trees with a dull axe. Then he lifted all 300 pounds of Schwarz’s bench over his head and threw it into the crowd!
The end result was a severely cut knuckle on Chris’s left hand and a broken bench.
At least that’s how I heard it. Of course, Schwarz tells the story differently on his blog. But you’d expect that…
