HELP!!!!!!!!!Somethings growing........

Post by Bemm 52 » Sat Jan 10, 2009 1:17 am

I wandered into my garage this evening to grab a beer and listen to some tunes from the
Swamp Fox when I noticed something :shock: :shock:

I must have left some plywood out from my last build that was not quiet dead :shock: :shock:

It had started to grow into something on my beer drinking table :shock: :shock:

Image

All I can do is quarantine the area and see what happens :shock: :shock:

Image

I fear I may be to late to stop this thing growing more it'll probably end up 15' long and 28" wide

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

EEGAD!

You must take immediate action and restrain that wood before it envelops your house!

This wood can break just about any bond known to man. The only hope you have is to imprison it in epoxy and fiberglass.

Good luck and may the force be with you.

I m sorry chaps but I think I have diagnosed the problem; just looking at the photos it’s obvious to me, and maybe others of my learned colleagues. Your workshop is just too dammed tidy. Throw the ply on the floor and save that drinking table!

Oh sorry Matt (HID) said I can’t go to the workshop, unless I go shopping with her. As I’ve been sick with man flu, will try to escape later but it may be tomorrow as she’s going out.

Better be careful and keep at a safe distance , After the get done multiplying they get together and form a shape , usually of a boat. That is when the trap is sprung on you , they cause this incurable urge in there victim to go paddling , fishing or just floating down some river with them. :lol:

Quarantine and barrier tape did little to stem its growth :shock: :shock:

Has now completely taken over my beer drinking table :shock: :shock:

And two of my favorite horses :shock: :shock:

Hasn't found my stereo yet though 8)

Have got to go away for a few weeks will try and trap it in epoxy and glass on my return :shock: :shock:

You start out with two, maybe three or four large pieces of wood. Then, you cut them up into geometrically appealing pieces. Next, you put them all together into one, solid, hollow chunk.

One day, idly wandering around your works hop, gently wondering what to do with that large wooden flower planter sitting there - you realize that it looks suspiciously like a BOAT!

You have now entered the Twilight Zone. All reason ceases; sanity slips away, and you become the little boy that you once were, long ago - only more wily. A sly smile grows on your face.

I guess you liked that Sabalo so much, you had to build another. Or was it, your wife liked it so much, you had to build another?
