I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas.
That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on:
A wine balancer
A cutting board.
You can see all three gifts in the the pictures
