Seen on a T-shirt at woodcraft

10) You blow your nose and sawdust comes out
9) Missing a digit (can only count to 9)
8) No lint in belly button, just wood chips
7) You smell like a hamster cage
6) Your fingernails are a nice shade of mahogany
5) You never throw anything away because you might need it
4) Your vehicle has never seen the inside of your garage
3) You've got sawdust in low places
2) The smell of sawdust takes you to your happy place
1) You never let your spouse buy furniture because you can "Make it".

I can relate to 10 and 6 through 1. :D

Everytime you see someone cut down a tree you go up and ask "what are you going to do with that?"

everytime you drive by an empty lot for sale imagine how it would look with your dream workshop on it.

Actually I use a nutmeg shaver for my coffee because it tastes better and it really does remind me of putting sawdust in my coffee :D

Yep, I got serious about dust collection. I was planing and jointing boards last night with the DC. No problems. Then I fired up the table saw. Somehow everything is covered now. Back to the drawing board.

Your 8 year old son knows every tree that has a burl within 6 square blocks.

Your co-workers bring you pictures of stuff they want you to build next weekend. And they think you can build it for cheaper than the one they saw at Art Van.

When asked, your five year old daughter says the end table is made out of "cherry birdseye maple"...

you can quote a price and time for a project without thinking.

your roof sags dangerously because you have so much wood in the loft.

you spend more on wood than your girlfriend.

you eat at a fancy diner and are disapointed at what the tables are made from. (do that way to often)

HAHAHA.. I always do that :D

I also mentally calculate how much they probably paid and how much I could have made if I'd gotten the job!

...if you drive by an old desk someone's thrown in the trash on the curb and you think, 'I can take that apart, sand it down and use it.'
...if you're not ashamed to compliment another man on his wood
...if you think $300 for a jig that lets you drill holes for dowels sounds like a good buy.
...if you know that a biscuit joiner isn't a person that works at a bakery
...if you don't think a good fence is something you sit on.
...if you don't think a Festool is something you sit on.
...if you don't think a Flitch is a bad Chevy Chase movie.
...if your idea of an economic stimulus plan is free shipping from Rockler.
...if you know a jig isn't something you dance.
...if the nicest cabinets in your house are in your shop
...if you know the difference between joining and jointing.
...if the first thing you do when you see a table is look underneath to see how it's joined.
...if you know that a butt joint isn't a rectal cigarette.
...if there's nothing sweeter to you than the feel of a newly sharpened plane blade slicing a perfect, diaphanous shaving in one, buttery pass.
