Friday Wisdom – In the Wood Shop

I checked and I started this Friday Wisdom stuff in 2016 and this will be my 327th post. I was going to make a list of all the subjects I’ve used, but at 326 that all of a sudden sounded like work. Instead, I was thinking about my woodworking so here’s what I know about that:

Did you hear that the Hulk decided to open a woodworking business? It’s named, “Bruce’s Banisters.”

How do you become a good woodworker, just work at it whittle by whittle.

I asked a lumberjack how much wood he’s chopped and he said, “Not sure, let me check the logs.”

My mother’s sister is a woodworker. She’s a carpenter aunt.

If you don’t think money grows on trees, you haven’t bought lumber recently …

Be careful, home repair can lead to addiction, because you’re always look for your next fix.

I’m working on an “under construction” joke, but it’s not done yet.

It’s never a mistake, just an artistic interpertation.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Every woodworker really needs a wood stove.

Measure twice, cut once, fill, sand, fill, …

Measure with a micrometer, mark with chalk, cut with an axe.

Did you hear about the blind woodworker who picked up his hammer and saw?

  1. The next fix! Ah! So true. If only home repairs felt as good as drugs supposedly feel. And you’ve been doing this since 2016?! That many posts?! Dang, I’ve missed out!

    You’ve done very well with a fairly limited subject. My favourite was “If you don’t think money grows on trees………”

    Knowing you’re a woodworker (is that a word?), these are especially funny.
