Hey Lew, you´ve been busy. Did you drink all those bottles?

I don´t even started to think on the Xmas yet.

From your little shop comes an astounding array of projects, demonstrating your diverse capabilities. It doesn’t take a lot of expensive tools, its just takes ingenuity, creativity, and for Christmas….....a big heart…..(-:

Best to you and yours for the holidays, Lew…........be thinking of you tonight, ‘cause Sherie is already defrosting pizza sauce and dough…............

Meilie- Thanks! Luckily I finished when I did because I get called back to school today- sorry Santa!

Karson- Thanks!

Steve- Thanks! Yes, they are fun- especially when using green wood. They turn and carve so much easier. I just need to make a smaller scorp for the deeper ones.

Fernando- Thanks! I’d tell you that I did not drink all that wine but I doubt that anyone will believe me!!

Jay- Thanks! This was my first attempt at the spaghetti spoons. Modeled them after a plastic one Mimi had- only I made it longer. Hope they work OK.

Smitty- Thanks!

Jim- Thanks so much for the kind words! So glad the pin is still working! Hope you, Sherie and you entire family have a Merry Christmas!

Great set Lew…currious how wine displays work-do bottles just sit on their side?

Thanks, Matt, yes, it’s about 3” wide so the bottles just lay over and seem to be pretty stable. Choppertoo's project is what I used for mine- just modified his design slightly.

I really get jealous, that I can make nothing in the shop.
Such fine things, the bow knife is super cool.
So many will be happy!
You have been a busy bee.
