Dear Santa, I’ve been very good this year … well, I’ve tried to be very good this year … well, I’ll try to be good from now until Christmas! Anyway, I would really like a DeWalt Track Saw and a Lie Nielsen Cabinet Maker's Scraper

Good weather so I can have my outside shop hours to finish projects for the other persons around me that have been “good”. If I can’t have that, then I’d like a new shop so I don’t have to worry about weather.

Dear Santa, Peter O really hasn’t been “that” good. I think maybe you should send that Dewalt Track Saw to my house! I’ll make sure you get cookies and milk. Peter will just give you day old coffee with sawdust in it!

i would have to say a couple of week in one of those shops that teach woodworking.. maybe a windsor chair without power tools.. i did one with power tools and it took the better part of a year.. of course a lot of that time was spent thinking about the chair while i was making sawdust on another project

Dear Santa, please give me enough work to catch the shop payments up and my house payments so that I don’t lose my home to foreclosure and get evicted from my shop. It is all that I have and all that I have dreamed of, and seeing it fail is killing me. Thanks.

I don’t want that “one” special thing. I want several small things….. wixley angle gauge, fractional caliper, pipe clamps, fortniser bit set. But, if I were to get 1 big thing, I would like a Rigid Sanding station.

Dear Santa!
I have been the best boy EVER this year. I even helped an old lady across the road….(grins) I would love to have an endless supply of any/every kind of lumber us LJ’s love.
A nice stocking stuffer would be a brand spankin new set of carving chisels :)
Thanks Santa!

Dear Santa. I have been very good this year. I didn’t shoot paintballs at the drunk speeding donkeys butts that drive past my house 70 mph in a 30 zone or stake out big signs stating what I would do to my neighbors if they continued to steal from my yard and threaten my children. I also have been very patient learning to live with others and deal with a child in her OH SO VERY terrible 3s.

I would really like the tabletop Bandsaw I saw at the used tool store. Its was only $50 and was super duper swell! A tablesaw would be nice too but I can wait until we move out of the H E doublehockeystick neighborhood we currently live in. Um but please don’t forget the clamps. I REALLY REALLY need clamps. The kids get tired holding boards together for 24 hours so they stay stuck.

BTW the kids have been good too. Not much that they can do now that they are glued to the table because I don’t have enough clamps.
