Topic tags/keywords: personality wood types personification

Perhaps it’s just too early this morning, but I was thinking about what wood best fit me as a person. I think I’d be pressure-treated pine. Pine because I’m easy to work with and pretty flexible. Sometimes people might get my “sap” if I’m not being nice or whatever, but for the most part, I’m easy to deal with. I’m at home in the south. Pressure-treated because…. well, I feel that way, and like to think I’m more durable because of it.

Anyone else have an idea for yourself?

I’d be laminated, because I like a variety of different woods.
I’d have a suit of many colors.

Dick, that’s probably why I love Hickory Heart so much. On one hickory board you can go from white to dark brown

Fun question. I’d be a Birch, because there are so many different types, and I could be curly, flamed or spalted. And the poem, you know, swinging on Birches, by R. Frost. They whisper in the wind, bend and dip with the gales, and a stand of them is so tall and regal.

I’d have to say, Quater Sawn White Oak. Because of its strength,flecking and stability. Cherry would be my second choice.

Maple. Sturdy, bright and sometimes complex because I come in a number or varieties.
