    She really knows how to hurt a guy

    Another anniversary, another year of bliss.

    This was my gift.

    Im not sure if this is encouragement or a hint.

    Im not showing her anymore pictures of the work you guys do until some other novice puts up a picture of a wishing well or a lighthouse as his prized project.(or an adirondack chair)

    (Im not promoting any publishers or authors, I have not opened the book yet)

    who said hurry up, open it up and start reading!

    I thought I had her convinced that 30 years of marriage gets her the privilege of receiving anything I build, whether she wants it or not.

    I think she really likes your table and is encouraging and supporting your hobby So now you need to tell the LOYL that "book" for anniversary, "jointer" for christmas so you can make the new projects in "book"

    At least she's acknowledging your desire to do woodworking. I think a book on underwater basketweaving would have been a more direct insult.

    And your post reminded me of this video I saw on another forum. Some important lessons for all of us men:

    Allen,

    Those are really excellent books. I have a few of them myself... all bought by Doorlink as presents...

    Well written, lots of high quality photos, full of great techniques...

    who could ask for more?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Yep, that is a good book, I have it as well, it has answered a lot of questions for me, I crack it open a lot, in fact, it is in my Dungeon Library

    Only the good books go there, the crummy ones end up in one of the reading rooms upstairs

    I had mentioned to her I wanted to stop off at a bookstore.
    I told her the publisher I wanted, she had mentioned my kids complain they cant buy me anything

    Kind of funny she bought it just before I plan out her buffet cabinet.
