Did you hear the news? Turns out there was this HUGE fight at Woodworking in America and Roy Underhill took out his anger on Chris Schwarz with a big hunk of Iron!

The way I heard it, Roy was whittling a little wooden boat out of a larger wooden boat and Chris came up behind him. Words were exchanged about hand tool skills. Chris took hold of Roy's mustache and cut half of it off with a paring chisel. Flushed with anger, Roy pulled a carving mallet from under his hat and threatened to mess up Chris' hair. That's when it all hit the fan!

Schwarz grabbed Undrehill by the suspenders and began swinging him around in circles while Underhill flailed his arms, shouting some kind of backwoods profanity until he tripped over a bench dog and landed on the convention center floor. When he came to his feet he was wielding an iron bench hook with murder in his eyes. A couple of swings was all it took to knock Chris Schwarz silly, but Roy wasn't done. Before storming off he let out a manly roar as he tore his shirt from his chest, his sinewy muscles bulging from years of cutting down trees with a dull axe. Then he lifted all 300 pounds of Schwarz's bench over his head and threw it into the crowd!

The end result was a severely cut knuckle on Chris's left hand and a broken bench.

At least that's how I heard it. Of course, Schwarz tells the story differently on his blog. But you'd expect that…

Mikema- My sources tell me that they had to be taken out of state to a more secure location to avoid the paparazzi, you know… because of their big celebrity status. Since nobody cares what happens in Arkansas, it was a good place to book them.

StumpyNubs- Okay, that explains it then! I shudder to think how much worse that already bad situation would have been with the paparazzi, and hand-tool mob for that matter, had they not taken those added steps for security.

HorizontalMike- I have been wondering that myself. I was thinking more along the lines of woodshop for the operating room, a 100 year old workbench as the operating table, and a large, 100 year old, two person saw for the actual separation..
