    Default Wood fetish............

    To all of us who have slowly or even swiftly shifted our atentions to a mere splintery symbol of our fetish and bypassing the bedroom with out passing go and not collecting $200 and strait for our refuge with our new love or old love in the shed and stroking our beloved machines and tenderly feeling our timber like it is a new love afair letting our imagination go wild for what we can craft our beloved timber into next.....................well there is a name for us who fit into the above description.........................
    we are called..........DENDRAPHILIACS.
    Tassie woodie We never grow up our toys just get more expensive.......

    Tasman, (guess I'm being picky here, but) shouldn't that be a "dendraphile", one who loves wood? I think a dendraphiliac would be one that is diseased by/with/from timber. Any Latin scholars or doctors on board?

    Dendraphile is a lover of wood.
    Dendraphiliac is the sufferer of uncontrollable bleeding when a splinter is removed from part of the body (or chisel, drill bit etc as long as it happened in association with WW)
