He selects the wood very carefully The grain and the color so beautifully Looking along the edge it’s straight And feeling it, it has a good weight
Remember to measure twice and cut once now It’s the rule of thumb before you show your know how He knows the work and the craftsman’s tools As he saws, planes and sands to carpenter’s rules
The joints are a woodworker’s art and a pleasure to see When glued together strong and straight it will be The last piece of the carpenter’s work is at hand To finish is to wax the wood for a look that’s grand
Wonderful wood full of carbon is ecological The carpenter stands back in his craftsman’s call Working with your hands shows a skill so good As he works his magic cutting and shaping the wood
