The Voices in Our Heads!

Rob-Portrait351Wow! Last eZine, I asked you to share the woodworking sayings that run through your head when you are in the shop. I knew you were into sharing, but really … I had no idea just how willing! There were nearly three hundred entries – so many, that to pick the winners (listed in our Feedback section) we just randomly pulled them out of our electronic hat. There simply were too many to pick the best. But I do want to share a few more that tickled my fancy. Enjoy!

“Do your best and caulk the rest” – Jim Phelan

“If I scream, shut it off …” – Adrian Centers
