    I could create a poll that would really start the double entendres, but I won't.
    Unleaded tastes a little tangy, supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

    Shouldn't that be a pole?
    Your endgrain is like your bellybutton. Yes, I know you have it. No, I don't want to see it.

    Ask me why I use hand tools, and I'll tell you

    For fine mallet work, it would have to be by the handle.

    It's interesting to me how many people chose blade instead of handle. I kind of figured that it would go blade for the inexperienced and more toward handle as experience becomes greater.

    Most definitely. Missed opportunity there.

    As long as there isn't a lengthy discussion on the merit of various butt-chisel diameters, why not?
