Exposure: Foxwood Co.

For the past week, I’ve been up to my elbows in wood glue as I help Casey of Foxwood Co. manufacture a metric ton of jewelry stands for Aid Through Trade. Casey and I have been passing the time by bitching about how MDF sawdust is just the worst. How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways.

MDF dust is:

  1. basically aerosolized formaldehyde
  2. a really ugly shade of brown
  3. so super fine that it floats through the air and has basically coated every surface of the shop with a layer of gross
  4. now nicknamed “the Devil’s Dandruff”

MDF dust is NOT:

  1. what I want my clothing to be covered in when I accidentally sit on my white couch
  2. a friend to you and me
  3. delicious
  4. good for eczema prone skin

Despite our differences, I made it my goal one afternoon to find the beauty in that damn dust.
