    You know you're a woodworker when...

    You need to see Kari Hultman's post on her blog of the same name at The Village Carpenter.

    I thought I had solved that by buying a lot of pencils and putting all over the shop, but somehow they still keep disappearing. I don't understand it.

    Since I know little about furniture construction, I always find myself looking underneath table tops and bending over to look at the ways doors are made, how they are connected, bases, walls of furniture.
    I think some of the people that see me do this feel sorry for me, like I have some type of mental disorder, cause I feel around all the joints and corners.(sometimes try to smell the wood)

    I for one absolutely love the smell of cutting walnut. I read they've developed a meat scented aftershave for men, which I would think would be somewhat repulsive. But a "Cut Walnut" one....I'd be headed right to the store to get some.
