    You Know You're a Woodworker When...

    I know this kind of thread has been started many times. But I thought this was a humorus. Everyone who adds is usually funny. I need a laugh today.

    I had to put the cookie bag back on top of the fridge. You know the kind that never stays closed when you roll the top.

    Not having a bag clip I reached for the only thing that made sense, A Spring Clamp. Made perfect sense to me.

    ....you know you are a woodworker when.....

    .....you get gifts for Christmas, birthdays, valentines day etc. that are all woodworking related.

    .....you make sure the tweezers are nearby to pull out splinters.

    ....magazines that you used to drool over are now replaced by Fine Woodworking, Shop Notes, Woodsmith, to name a few.

    When you want to go furniture shopping with your wife so you can get new ideas..

    ......when you go to get into the shower at the end of the day you're brushing wood chips off your belly from where they lodged between your skin and underpant waist band.

    Don - might I add.... When your shopping for furniture with your wife and you tell her "I can make that"....FOR HALF THE PRICE! (with only one new tool)

    You know your a woodturners when;
    You hear a chain saw in your neighborhood, you hop in the truck and go investigate what kind of tree it is.
