I recently stumbled across Cafepress, a website that sells all manner logo'd clothing and accessories. Curious as I am, I started to look for woodworking themed shirts. I found a lot. Eventually, I settled on the one you see me wearing in the photos (link). The best thing about them is that they aren't covered in logos for tool companies, magazines (ahem!), or retail outlets. True, some of the options are a, how do I say this...not my style, but most are pretty cool. Take a look and show your love for the craft.

T-shirts and tattoos are both pretty tame. What Matt really needs is a tongue piercing, and instead of the usual barbell, the stud should have a miniature molding plane on the end.

If he does it right, there's a dental hygiene bonus: He can use the plane to clean plaque from his teeth.
