Hey Guys,

I just won third place in a woodworking Haiku contest. I've been told that my poetry had a Zen like quality to it. The prize is a supply of tack cloths? Oh well, I guess perfection is its own reward. :D

My entry:

As more shavings fly,
The less I am inclined
To sweep them all up.

Sort of sums up my personal philosophy, doncha know. :wink:

Tom

That'll teach me not to forget to check my e mail. I havn't looked at the Journal for a couple of months. If I'd known that comp was on I'd have entered myself :(

Yours was definitely the most Haiku like to my mind.

'The well driven nail'... what's that got to do with quality work :roll: :wink:

Hey Tom,

Oh yeah? Well, take this...

The dust collector
howls and whines, but silently,
shavings make no dust

Haiku war, I love it. :D

Tom

How can I replace
Big Ugly, when I only have
two legs, and no vise?

What do you mean that
You've got no vices when
Poetry fits that bill
