Now, back to Woodworking for Hamsters

Today we’ll be making a lovely hand-lathed sock rack, but first let’s put on our safety goggles. It’s important to wear googles that are the right size for your face…

OK, these are maybe just a smidge too large…

  1. Awwww.

    I always wondered how big was a skosh, now I just need to find three smidges.

  3. Nah, just a smidge and a half.

  4. How many bit in a smidge?

  5. I bit in a smidge once, but it tasted kind of bitter so I spat it out.

  6. Mary (the first) says:

    Then how many smidges in a soupcon? I’m so confused. I hate metrics. But, I love the little hammie! By the way, how can I get one of those sock racks?

  7. To sit next to the coffee table book?

  8. Is it just me, or does that pattern on the ground under the hamster look like a.. um… mer-hummingbird?

  9. Are you sure it wasn’t a snipe?

  10. That is adorable! 😀

  11. It does! I wonder where one can obtain a mer-hummingbird? Must be a pretty awesome place.

  12. Let’s just go with a pinch.

  13. Also, don’t you mean “This Old Mouse?”

    can somebody please ‘splain to me, how a hammie will take hold of the plane or the wood ??? I PROMISE I’ll b’lieve you ….

  15. It’s a very, very tiny plane, maybe?

  16. Is it a narwhal?

  17. Fird Birfle says:

    ok, so that at least is LOGICAL …
