Well Kari,
You had said that you were going to diet and exercise but I must admit I didn't recognize you with the beard. the bod is coming along nicely but I would loose the beard unless you S.O. really likes it!

I would have gone with the half-back.

I just noticed "her" grip is not correct... index finger should be extended.

Mike, yeah, I forgot to shave before the photo shoot. Darned 5 o'clock shadow!

Eric, or at least an actual rip saw, given the title of the article. I noticed the grip, too after awhile. The thing I noticed first was the saw nib and handle and I thought,"Wow, where'd they get such a nice saw?" Then I read the article. Sometime after that, I noticed the model. haha

Hey Kari, isn't that THE SCHWARTZ, editor at Popular Woodworking Magazine?? Does he no yet? Watch out, revenge might be awkward ;-)

The Village Carpenter said...

Will, it all started when my friend Emily sent this image from Maxim to Megan and me. It was all downhill from there...

And all I noticed (after I stopped laughing) was the shoes! Nobody wears shoes like that in a shop, even a hand tool shop.

Though the added height would come in handy if I had to use a man-sized bench. [I'm 5'2" when I stretch.]

The Village Carpenter said...

Liz, you'd definitely need heels like that if you ever find yourself parked in front of Adam Cherubini's bench at Pennsbury Manor. The benchtop is up to my elbows, and I'm 5' 5".

Now thats a poster worthy of a shop calender. All you need now 11 volunteers for Feb thru Dec, shouldn't be hard for you to find.

Joey, could I interest you in volunteering to be Mr. August??? :D

Philip Yarra said...

Priceless stuff! My eyes are still burning. I'll have to go through Mr. Schwartz's workbench book and see if I can find some more pictures of those lovely legs.

Jerm said...

While I'm not usually sporting heels in the shop, my typical footwear is usually a pair of Chaco flip flops and shorts =) But never a pair of shorts that short! Although there would be little chance of getting that clothing caught in any machinery =)

TheWoodWhisperer said...

Whoah! Schwarz is making me consider playing for the other team. I'm talking about hand tools of course. ;)

The Village Carpenter said...

Philip, is it a tad disturbing, isn't it?

Jerm, I wore flip flops one time (and one time only) in my shop. I was working with chisels, and—you guessed it—one rolled off my bench, business side down and missed my foot by 1/4". I decided that was my warning shot, so I've never done it again. Now short-shorts in the shop—I'm all for it! haha

Marc, you had me worried there for a sec. whew!

I've been known to wear high heels in the shop...and I get a lot of cautionary messages when that shows up in pictures. Right now, I have on sandals. I _wish_ I could find time to get in the shop and temp fate.

I often wear flip flops in the shop...one of the finest ways I know to keep you on your toes when things start rolling off the bench - Rob

Megan, I feel your pain. I don't know if my shop will even recognize me when I get some free time to visit it.

Rob, good point!! (pun intended)
