I could make a fairly inappropriate joke at this point about wood, but I better not in case I offend our audience and dramatically reduce our readership.
This weekend, there’s this show on and it’s all about wood. “Pretty riveting stuff,” I hear you all think, but many will be interested as to what the pros can tell the weekend hobbyist, home DIY and chippies by trade. Check the latest in tools and techniques, also contests, demonstrations of wood finishes and stuff like that.
Who knows, maybe you’ll meet the love of your life here, and then you’ll build a log cabin in the woods together, build a wooden playground for your many offspring, train your children as master carpenters, then they’ll build an ark for the climate change apocalypse, and they’ll craft wooden stakes to slay the remnants of vampire zombies left scattered around, and then you’ll live happily ever after, all thanks to WOOD!
I have now exceeded my word count and abused my editorial powers, but it’s all for the best. You know it.
