What did you get from Santa? Table saw? Band saw? New truck? Tractor? Clothes? Shoes? Boxers? Laptop? TV? Show us pictures of what you got. I got this new laptop, a Woodpeckers 1218 square, wall mounted clamp rack, and a few other nice things from my great family.

My wife bought me a 27” x 43” incra router table top. I am going to build a rolling cabinet for it, but first I need to find a design for this big boy. The top corner of the router table was damaged during shipping so it will have to be sent back. I can’t believe they don’t package those any better than that. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

My wife hooked me up! We agreed this year to go easy on each other and go nuts on the kids. She didn’t really stick to the plan (nor did I as I got her some jewelry and a digital SLR camera)

Pictured below:
dewalt d26453k variable speed ROS (awesome)
Ridgid trim router (Yes!!)
Starret 6” double square
Mini easy router
Mini easy finisher
Norton 4000/8000 waterstone
Norton waterstone flatterer

Not pictured:
$100 woodcraft giftcard
CA Glue finishing kit
BT&C 192g hide glue (I was running low so awesome there!)
80, 100, 120, 180, 220, and 400 grit Klingspor 25 pack boxes
A few pen kits I have been wanting

And she got me some clothes and, last mut not least, Swedish fish – the best candy ever made

For me I got this..

Smart choice.. every time I say what I want. It is not what I want. Although there is very little these days I can buy at HD at the quality I need. That said I ALWAYS need another tape measure.

The shop got one of these for christmas. (woodmaster 718)

Used however, and I will be doing a comprehensive review. see here: xx for previous thread. (thanx for all who gave input, pics and info will be forthcoming)

Just two sets of accessories for my Dremel Clone. Sanding set, and a polishing set! Oh, and another set of headphones for my computer. I can now do Hard Rock as load as I want ( the ONLY way) and not wake up the neighbors!

On the way here, a Stanley #18 (?) Knuckle cap blockplane. First one for me.
