Fun But Obscure

I have always enjoyed odd little factoids, especially about my favorite topic, woodworking. For example, one piece of trivia (although it has its challengers), is that Sister Tabitha Babbit, a member of the Shaker faith, is said to have invented the circular saw. Or, that the kukui tree is Hawaii’s state tree — but that it is not actually native to the islands.

My question for you is, what is your favorite piece of woodworking trivia? I’d love to know it and, if you send it in to me, we will put your name into an electronic hat, and one submitter will win a Rockler $50 gift card! So, click here to submit your trivia, and cross your fingers!
