Okay, let’s pretend that we have all been good little boys and girls all year, and Santa is going to bring you that one special new toy for your workshop. What would it be?

As a tribute to Jim Croce – Time in a Bottle, so I can be in the shop and finish the project that I started in Aug.

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.

Sorry Joe, no amount of pretending in this world will pull that off for me this year. It’s coal and switches all the way!

Garage insulation, drop ceiling, T-8 florescence lighting and a shop heater that vents to the outside.
On a more realistic note, a Worksharp 3000.

I’d like a spine that heals up so I can get back to the shop (and probably damage again, I never learn!)

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!

Dear Santa, My wife would like the new building built now to get the woodshop out of the basement…since this is a sacrifice of my gift to give her something she really wants, how bout it?
