  • Ain't it The Truth

    Saw this tag line on another woodworking forum. It's darn close to the truth isn't it?

    "turns out that woodworking is 1% making things you'll use, 4% making bespoke high
    end firewood, 15% cleaning, and 80% looking for the bloody thing you just put down"
    "It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?" ? Bob D. 2006

    In my case a lot of times the 4% mentioned is bespoke high end lumber for other projects to be used as construction lumber. Recently used some high end leftovers to shim a condensate drain line on an HVAC install for a customer.

      Absolutely right. I keep gloves all over my two shops because I leave them everywhere. I found a hinge I was installing two weeks ago behind the computer screen.
