Hi folks, the hollydaze caught up with me, and I’ve honestly not been out in the shop in a week or more. (it is winter and we’ve got all of this nasty white stuff on the ground…)
I had a very good christmas tools wise:
I finally have some Thompson Lathetools gouges: 1/2” detail, 1/2” V Bowl gouge and 1/4” detail gouge.
Wixey angle gauge
idetail digital caliper
Couple of pretty cool tools from Kobalt
handsome little ‘Sarge’ brand pocket knife with a beautiful maple burl for the side pieces. (I’m not a knife guy, but this one is fast becoming my favorite to carry around)
I’ve been continuing to make cutting boards, and even had a several sales just before christmas. I had a friend from high school contact me, and order 6 small cutting boards:
representative sample of the boards
I had another issue crop up with my recently repaired planer… not the same issue as before, and I haven’t taken it to the shop for repair. I think I’m going to bite the bullet and upgrade to a DW735 sometime after the first of the year.
Cross your fingers for me, i’ve applied and interviewed for a dispatcher job with a large grocery distribution company, hope to have the new job by next weekend (if I get it).
