I’m almost, but not quite at a loss for words. After rambling on awhile ago about wanting to improve my router table, I got a PM from a fellow Canadian, LJ Doe. She had a router table top that she wasn’t using. After looking at some options to get it to me, and my protests, here’s what arrived by mail. Anyone who deals with Canada Post knows this wasn’t cheap.
The whole time I was opening the boxes I was humbled by the fact that this gift is a huge act of kindness by a person who is asking nothing in return. Anyone who thinks that those people no longer exist needs to spend a little time on this website.
Not only did she send me a router table top, but also a set of router bits, router fence and a right-angle sled, insert plates and all the instructions. I have some smaller Veritas tools from Lee Valley and love them.
I turned to woodworking to deal with the stresses of being on a medical roller coaster for the past 2 1/2 years. I joined this site to find answers to woodworking questions and to get ideas and look at tool reviews.
Merry Christmas Doe. And again, thank you very much.
