The wife is a bit of a joker. I asked for a Bevel-up smoother plane from Lee Valley for christmas, and this is what I got:

Suppose I should have been more specific!

Anyways, Just curious to see what new tools everyone got for Christmas this year.

From the wife, i got a new Norton 1000/8000 grit stone and Diamond flattener stone, a corner rounding plane and a mini router plane. Pretty good christmas all around.

I got asked what I wanted for my fortieth birthday (a long time ago) and said “A Harley”. I got a Matchbox model of one. We need to be a little more specific in our requests!
