    I’ll start with one that I really liked from Episode 6 of the Dovetail Boxes series:
    “I am making this look easy… But it can be quite difficult”

    “…this is the cheapest chisel I’ve ever used, I think. This one cost, brand new, £1.50”

    This was the single most important sentence I heard when getting into woodworking. In an effort to learn about the craft I had only found expensive tools, showroom quality workbenches and contrived methods. Then I found a video of a guy in his back garden making a pine bench with inexpensive tools and I haven’t looked back.

    (The quote is from the workbench episode 6 on youtube showing how to chop mortises.)

    “I am slightly out of breath… That is because I am 63 (smile) and I don’t run enough”

    Also, my initial post seems gone, so I’ll copy it here:

    “The penalty for inaccuracy is more work.”

    I have this displayed over my bench, and find myself learning the lesson repeatedly 🙂

    Not really a quote but I thought it was funny in the Christmas stars episode around 9:50 when he mispoke spruce and mahogany by saying sprice and Mahogany. I don’t know why but I got a kick out of that. He kinda laughed at his self.

    Otherwise. I agree with Matt. I like “perfect”

    It always makes me smile when he goes “Whooo” at something, normally when gluing up.

    I like this one too…especially when he was gouging the seat for the bench stool!

    “Tea makes a better woodworker.”

    I’m sure there are a couple million woodworkers who would disagree here in the US! lol

    Seattle-ite here, and even though I live in the land of coffee and Starbucks, I have to agree with Paul. 🙂 Nearly every time I got to my bench I have a cuppa tea in my hand.
