Grizzman, a1jim and David,
Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern’t really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing.
Grizzman sent me a verity of wood from Dark Walnut Plywood to Cedar Wood and one I think he refured to as Antique Pine, which all of these pieces will eventualy come in Handy, I’ve yet to decide on what to make with these wonderful Pieces of Wood.
David also sent me some Cherry Plywood that has done me well in my Scroll Saw Adventure.
Also last week, a1jim was kind enough to send me what I would refur to as an Antique Spokeshave, which is what it kinda looks like.
I’ve yet got to sharpen the blade on it, but it’s in excellent condition for being as old as it is, I’m not sure what year or who made it or even what it’s made out of but I’m sure once it is sharpened up it will preform as good as the next spokeshave.
I only brought this up because there are few in this world that care about others that are in need. Both of these gentalmen were kind enough to aid me in my woodworking journey, in providing either materials that were too small for them to use or was an excessive amount they had no use for or room and instead of tossing them in the burn pile, they donated to give someone else a chance at a great hobby.
Generally, what I do is make someone something for a token of their genersoity for the donation that they have provided me with. Since I do more Scroll Saw during the winter and limited on funds for the other woodworking, I just generaly do Scroll Saw til the funds are there.
And older tools that they donated to help out cause they either had no room for them or they wanted to see someone else with limits succeed in the success of woodworking hobby.
To them both I am Very Greatful that they was kind enough to send me some materials and tools. Thanks for the useful Donations you two, it was very greatful and generous for you to take care of a fellow woodworker in need, it’s the genersoty of you two Plus others that help others out that make this world and hobby an unforgettible journey!
