Woodworking Truths, Axioms and Corollaries

This is a page for one-line truths about woodworking.  Add yours, or e-mail them to me and I will post them here with full credit to the author.

  • The closer you are to a deadline, the messier your shop will be.
  • The sharpness of a tool is inversely related to its importance in the project’s next step.
  • At the end of the day, put your stuff away.
  • If you’ve walked around the shop more than twice looking for something, either you didn’t put it away  last time you used it….or you did. (I know not everyone will get this, but some will!)
  • Working from a cut list practically guarantees your project components will not fit. (Work from reality!)
  • Your bench is not a substitute for your took rack or tool box.
  • The more edged tools you leave lying around the faster they become dull.
