Sit back boys and girls, and let me tell you the story of the
Long ago, in a small town in Oz lived a man who we'll call Phully.
Phully was a talented and gifted wood basher who could pop out an
entertainment center, two end tables, a bookcase, and two wine racks
lunch. After noon, when he finished his 9th Fosters, he went back
shop and there before him stood a poor Aussie waif.
"Pardon me sir, but I'm hungry. Could I have the crumbs from your
sandwich - please sir?" Phully was all choked up ~ not because the
hungry but because he had just killed off his last grog and was going
miss his 2:00 "coffee break" if he didn't go to market and pick up
cases. "I tells you what you farkin little elf - you stay here and

"For the love of God son, call it Jummywood!"
So for those of you non-believers who don't believe there is such a
a Jummywood tree, let me assure you there is. Just as there is a
Claus, Easter Bunny, and E.T. It ain't as expensive as walnut or ipe,
mean after all - wood don't grown on trees!
So there you have it - the birth of Jummywood.
Now close your eyes, think good thoughts, and go to sleep.
Good night boys and girls.
