Some Woodworker's Humor

PINOCCHIO AND THE SAND PAPER

Pinocchio went to see his old friend Gepetto
about a problem he was having. Seems
Pinocchio had a new girlfriend, who
complained of getting splinters every
time they were intimate. Gepetto brought
Pinocchio into his workshop, and handed
him some sheets of fine sandpaper. “Take
these and sand yourself smooth, and you
won’t have that problem anymore” Gepetto
advised.

Two weeks later, Gepetto saw Pinocchio
skipping down the street. “Pinocchio, did
you solve that problem with your girlfriend”
he asked. “Girlfriend?
Who needs a girlfriend?” Pinocchio replied.

No matter how fine the grain of the sandpaper, it sounds like this problem would resolve itself over time. To Pinocchio's detriment.

Woody, I heard that he had a "girlfriend" in Tijuana who gifted him with an insidious case of the termites.

A lot can be said for having smooth palms i guess.

After I sand to 2000 grit I use a lemon oil wax mix and work it in with my hand.
