## Christmas Present!

12-27-2010 02:44 AM by | 5 comments »

Here’s a picture of what my wife got me for Christmas… this gift was based on advice from Steve Ramsey's video for the spouses of woodworkers on gifts. Great Big Thanks to Steve!!!! (BTW, Steve’s Blog site Woodworking for Mere Mortals is great fun and, once in a while, actually informative grin; Be sure to sign up to follow his blog!) Anyway, on to the gift! A very nice S4S piece of Cocobolo, about 1.2 bdft! Don’t know what I’m going to make with this, but it’ll definitely be for SWMBO… Hope you all had a great Christmas! God Bless and have a Happy New Year! Mark
