    If you know how to pronounce "cyanoacrylate" you're probably a woodturner.

    ...or when you spend an entire weekend cutting out dry rot from your porch eaves, the a few days later turn a "spalted" bowl and call it beautiful.

    You know you're a woodturner if you have a great-looking woodpile. (Forwarded to me by one of the guys from Woodturners Around the Globe)

    You are, absolutely, a woodturner if there are spots of finish on every single set of safety glasses you own.

    You know you are a woodturner if you choose to go to the woodturning club rather than go out and celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary the same night.
    My wife and I had words, but I didn't get to use mine.

    A rake would work, but a leaf blower is faster. Make sure to use ear protection.

    You're a woodturner if you sometimes wear shirts backward or inside out ... to keep wood chips from getting into unwanted areas of your body. The female turners will, especially, appreciate this comment.
