Woodworking Humor
« on: October 20, 2022, 11:56 PM »
During my deployment to Afghanistan in 2010/2011, I asked my family and friends to send me comics to give me and those I served with something to smile about.  Today I ran across this fun comic that was sent to me in 2010 about every woodworker’s conundrum of what do to with leftover scrap wood.  I thought I would share so you could enjoy as well.  While I found the paper version, I’m sharing a snapshot of the on-line version so the humorist Hilary Price gets the credit.

I can relate, I have cartons of small scraps, but every time I seem to need something really small for a project, the scraps are just that little too small!

But I live in hope! ;-)

Sorry, I fail to understand the joke...  [popcorn]

Of course I'll use all that stuff.

There was a whole thread on here awhile ago about hoarding offcuts. I had a look but couldn’t find it. Maybe another member knows where it is. Respect to all conflict veterans.

Edit - found it  [big grin]

By the way, my grandfather was WWI British Army.  My grandmother, his future wife based in Reading, lost her first husband during that war.  I’ve noticed your location and wanted you to know that over my 34-year Navy career, and with my family history, I have great respect and appreciation for all of our allies…particularly our closest ones…England and Canada.

Bonus points for, "a buddy of mine owns a lumber mill and had a customer pre-pay but never pick up his load, so I got 100 board feet of spalted maple and 100 board feet of black walnut for the cost of a few gallons of gas in my truck."

And I'd add those friends down under - Australia and New Zealand.
