Neighborly woodworking

Recommended Posts

I wish my chore today involved woodworking. I'm laying travertine tile for a widow lady friend of ours. But she always thinks ahead when I do work for her. Like your good neighbor, beer will be waiting!

Be careful with neighbors like that..  I have one of those and now his wife always asks me to build crap for them they find on Pinterest..  They're good neighbors tho and I help where I can.

Or the ones that bring your MC bill over to you that was delivered to his house by mistake two months ago and thinks you owe him a six pack and two hours of your time.

His wife scares me, she's always mowing, weedwhacking, digging, she's pretty beast and sometimes I think a bit manly.

On Friday my neighbor asked if he could borrow a "fishner" bit. After staring at him for like ten seconds I figured it out. He brought me no beer when he returned it. I hate my neighbors.

Sitting with the in laws and died laughing. Now they all think I'm weird .... Well more weird than they already do [emoji1]

That's right up there with the guy on here who said his wife told him to be safe and go buy one of those "Stop Saws"

Sort of a .357, “Welcome to the neighborhood”.... “Won’t you be my Neighbor?” :)

Yea, but think of it from her point of view, “I've got this crazy neighbor that actually makes furniture... Instead of going to Ikea and buying it.... He’s just Nuts...”  :)

If my neighbor's dog bit me I fear I would be at fault. The dog would be left with animal control three counties away.

May I suggest, a shallow grave?

 

Of course, being in NJ and the home base for Tony Soprano, the ever popular Pine Barrens...

My neighbor came over last week, he had bought the house on the opposite side of his house than me, it is vacant. He wanted to know if I would bring the mini excavator over to dug up and cap the sewer line so the sanatery district would quit sending him a sewer bill for a vacant house.

To me, that's going a little too far. I'd be tempted to tell him what your wage per hour is, including the rental on the machine!

My wife still refers to my saw as a stop saw! I've stopped correcting her...as it was her that encouraged me to get one in the first place.

You're probably the guy I am referencing! it's kind of like when the kids say "Pattakiller" or "Concreke".....just smile and let it go.

So I'm getting ready to glue up the front slab of the roubo yesterday, and my doorbell rings. It's my neighbor, and he invited me over for some beer. He asks what I like and I tell him dark beers, stouts, etc. He said I've got just the one. He pulled out a growler of a beer he brewed, and some beer glasses from his freezer. We sit in his yard and bullsh*t for 2 hours and drink. The beer was incredible!

And how did the glue up go for ya?

 

Glue up went well. I did it slightly inebriated.  got a decent squeeze out, and maybe a bit overzealous with glue on the first board.
