Woodworking Lingo

According to my mother, my style of speaking changes when I've been reading old Woodworker annuals. More emphasis on detail, apparently. Hopefully the effects of 1930s workshop practice won't spread to my appearance, because I'm not sure the tie, waistcoat and moustache look is really me...


  1. Hum, yes tie, hat and a pipe seem to be standard issue for the smart wood worker. I do still support a beard and am known to wear a waistcoat at times but I do draw the line there.

  2. Waistcoats just make sense, arms free, body warm, nothing to catch in whirring blades and four pockets to loose small bits in. Great.
