If your significant other was a wood, what type of wood would he or she be?
So, I thought this topic might generate some interesting comments; fun read for the weekend.
I can think of my wife as a walnut. As she ages, she becomes more impressive and valuable. Like a walnut, she hardly ever cracks or warps while seasoning and maintains her pleasant scent. She, like a walnut is pleasant to look at and impossible to go unnoticed. Once cured, it takes a lot of heat and steam to bend (onset of arthritis).

All I know is they start off like balsa and wind up like ironwood…....too heavy to float.
That’s OK though. You just leave them at a garage sale, move to another country, and start over. ;-)

-- What day is it ? No matter. Ummmm What month is it ? No moron. I paid for a 2 x 6. That means Two inches by six inches. I want the rest of my wood.

Curly maple. Beautiful to look at, but sometimes difficult to work with!

Good one.

I’m thinking pallet wood. A lot of work to clean up. Not always sure it’s worth the effort :)

Not sure how to answer this one without getting divorced and kicked off this forum at the same time.

My lovely Linda is like Quarter Sawn First Growth English Oak.
Hard as hell, Inflexible and still pretty.
Resistant to bullshit and about everything else.
Takes a good polish.
Prone to leaving splinters if you aint real careful.
Pity about the chip on her shoulder….

Baltic birch plywood: She has many layers, and if you rub her the wrong way too hard, you will expose something you really didn’t want to see.
