Just a few items here. There is a lot of stuff not pictured, and some big giftcards. I also got myself a Christmas present that should be here soon (Thanks again Don!) – a Stanley #7

I have been collecting tools hoping to find time to do woodworking. My craftsmanship, I am sure is subpar.
My wife got me a membership to the local woodworker’s guild with shop previledges. Now I have an excuse for a monthly meeting and have a chance to learn from people who knows what they are doing.

Willeh, that is an awesome saw, I have the 16 inch with the walnut handle, I’m sure it cuts like a dream. Bad axe saws are worth every penny they cost and every minute u wait for them.

I got the joy of seeing loved ones appreciate the hand made gifts I made for them.
It’s been a tight year financially.
I’m enjoying the small pleasures this year.

No tools, but a couple gift cards to the BORG and a check for $150 earmarked explicitly for use toward the purchase of a bandsaw. So I did OK.

My lovely girlfriend bought me all the James Krenov books. I had previously borrowed them from the library, but I so wanted them for keeps. Yay

I got a few things…a couple of books (Schwarz’s Workbench Design Book and Masaschi’s Foolproof Wood Finishing), an old wooden plane, a burnisher (but not any cabinet scrapers, at least, not yet), some $$ for tools (I’m thinking a set of Stanley Bailey chisels), and a set of Kobalt knives that are pretty good beater knives.

my wife gave me the Incra IBOX, I have made hinges with it so far, I really like it, did have a set up issue, it was making the pins about a 1/64” too large, I called Incra, and they told me how to fix it , a simple adjustment, now it works fine, Incra gives great customer service.

My parents got me a Jet air cleaner! Also, my wife’s aunt and uncle gave me a Lee Valley gift card and 4 pieces of lumber—some walnut, bloodwood, wenge, and a beautiful 1.5”x1.5”x18” piece of ebony. Also got some small things from Rockler and some gift certificate money that may go into some tools.
