Look what came with the postman!
I want to send a thank you to Alba.
Some days ago I received a PM from our fellow LJ Alba from Scotland (Jamie).
He wrote me if he could send me a piece of burl, ‘It may make a nice Grease Box’ he wrote.
And I said yes, how could I refuse this wonderful offer.
This morning the postman came with a pack, and I was a little confused, since I had not ordered any hand planes lately… (Budget is running kind of low with the pension now).
But as soon as I could see it came from Scotland, my smile was wide as a garden gate.
- And you can see on the pictures that it only became bigger when I opened it.
What a wonderful man, to write me a letter like that, and to tell you a example of his optimistic look at life he learned me something:
There are no rain, only liquid sunshine.
That’s one beautiful piece of burl; it’s so beautiful that I will almost not have the heart to cut it.
I do not know what sort of woof it is, but its dark like Walnut – help me here Jamie!
The best of thoughts from my heart, a big thank you, and a giant smile that will not get of my face
