Thinks I've learned this weekend in the shop

1. Keep a jar of saw dust in your shop. When you buy a new tool, throw a bunch of the saw dust on it. That way, when SWMBO sees the tool she won't say "Hey, that looks like a new tool" implying, of course, that it was not money well spent and she gets an equivalent amount. 2. Every third piece of furniture should be for SWMBO. SWMBO should be asked questions like "Would you like four drawers or eight?" and "Do you think your crystal glass and your collector's dishes would fit on this shelf?" 3. Put a thinking chair in the shop. The chair doesn't think, you think while in it. 4. Never go to the shop with dirty dishes in the sink. Priorities are funny things. For you to get to your first priority, you better do the last priority first. 5. Always leave enough room in your garage-turned-woodshop for SWMBO's car. 6. SWMBO doesn't care about router horsepower. 7. Cabinets and drawers hide a lot from SWMBO. Years can go by without SWMBO ever noticing thousands of dollars of new Bosch, Milwaukee, and Port-Cable tools. Of course the big tools are harder to hide. Those might require diplomatic and/or romantic skills. [snip]
