A day in my life:
2 flies landed on my Miter Saw, one went beserk when he flew off the handle.
Injured my hand on the Table Saw last week, cut deep right between the 2nd (middle) finger and the 3rd. If I raise my hand now and say “Live long and prosper” I could pass as a Vulcan.
My wife complains about the sawdust I bring in the house, asks why I can’t leave it in the shop. !!!!!
My wife told everyone I was a WoodWorker, now I have all the neighbors wanting me to split logs for their fires.
My wife bragged that I could make and match any furniture pieces, now the neighbors in our project estate want me to make maching pieces to their Thrift Store and garage sale purchases.
My wife is a really bad cook, yesterday I replaced her flour with sawdust and the cake she baked tasted much better.
Coiled up my Band Saw blade for cleaning in a pizza tray and accidentally dropped one of those little blue pills in. The blade uncoiled itself and and I could not get it to recoil for 4 hours.
