I mentioned to the wife the other day that I had some items in my Wish List from Amazon that she could pick something from for my birthday; anything would be a welcome addition to the workshop and be very much appreciated. Then, realizing some items on the list would be useless with out some others, and she wouldn’t know what those relationships would be, I told her I would make up a list for her of groups to pick from. I came up with three, any one of which would be complete and I wouldn’t have to buy anything more to use what she bought me. Today a couple of boxes came in. When she got home she told me they were for my birthday, and proceeded to open the boxes for me. Yeah, I think she forgot how the birthday present opening goes. :) Well, come to find out she bought all three groups, everything I asked for. Nice, huh?
The package on the bottom right that got hit with the glare is a package of cabinet scrapers.
Earlier today I received an email from Shop Woodworking for the four book series The Practical Woodworker 4 Volume Paperback Set. Over 1,600 pages of old time woodworking goodness. How could I say no? Can’t wait. These will definitely take me more than a few hours to read.
