I suppose my wife wanted to be funny and while at the shop today working together she asked me when our LumberJocks Calendar was going to be released. She is a real teaser… She asked what month I was going to be and then suggested July :)

Anyway, all in good humor so I thought I would pass this info along to see who wanted to be the other 11 months!

I was looking forward to glossy photos of table saws, hand planes and exotic lumber piles, with lots of clamps in the background. And picturesque hilltop workshops. And Viking tools.

Yes, some nice tool pics would be good. And the April fool comment is great!

I asked my wife to take my picture so I could submit it.
She told me no way and made me put away the skill saw,
. then told me to go put on some clothes!!

Kevin, my wife and I both got a good laugh from your post. Thanks for the laugh.

There is a Handplanes calendar featuring LJ-submitted pics. Only valid for a few more months though.

If it gets cold enough, I will volunteer for December, then with my old down parka there will not be enough
uncovered for anyone to see me.
