When I was planning my recent trip to the USA, I was hoping to meet up with some LJs and at least one friend currently living is Philladelphia. So that I would not be visiting empty handed, I wanted to make something relatively simple but would be somewthing they are unlikely to already have. Additionally, it had to be easy to pack and travel. So I made three Scratch Stocks from a design in Australian Woodsmith (a metric version of Woodsmith Magazine, as far as I can tell).

Well I managed to meet up with Planeman in Atlanta, Georgia and my friend. So I have one left for myself.

Funny story, I rocked up at Damion’s place in PHiladelphia on the day his copy of Australian Wood Review arrived. Of course I have a look and he tells me to check out the article he wrote for that edition. Guess what the article was about, using scratch stocks. So we had a laugh about the coincidence of that.

Anyway, I nice easy project and very useful as well, hopefully.

They look great. I’m sure the recipients will be very pleased. Since you are flying to the east coast, you could drop a few over the west coast on the way ;-))
