I am on a Ferry to Victoria to see the outlaws. Had to leave a box of LeeValley presents at home.
We head off skiing for a week after that so I won’t get to play for weeks.
What did Lumberjocks get for their Christmas woodworking gifts???

This was my favorite present this year, a coat rack made by my daughter at school – nothing could beat that, imagine her little hands making this for me!
Merry Christmas,

I got a gift card to buy some exotic lumber from Wood Workers Source… I have been looking the site over trying to figure out what to get….

I got an old Rockwell/Delta Series 31-710 Belt/Disc sander that I found on Craigslist.

I scored big: I got 3 old Stanley planes (a No 3, 4 and 5) and a Grizzly 14” band saw with a riser block. Now I get to cut some usable blanks from that curly cherry firewood I have been stashing away!

My brother and I agree in advance what the amount of our Lee Valley gift certificates will be that we give to each other. That way we redirect a portion of our christmas budget to ourselves and at the same time to others (in this case each other). Our wives have decided to agree that it is amusing – sort of.

I got a turbine-driven HVLP sprayer, a dremel 4000, 8 drawer mini toolchest, and some other smaller odds and ends type stuff. My wife always complains that all I ever seem to want is tools (mostly true), but then again, that is the way it always was in my house growing up (my mom complaining about how all my dad ever wanted was tools, again true).

I got a heater for my shop. It’s been a bit chilly working down there of late. Now it will be more comfortable. I also got some cool old tools. A North Bros. (pre-Stanley) Yankee Screwdriver and several bits and some bits and attachments for use with a brace. Also got a set of clamps from my sons. Best of all, my wife and I head out on Monday on vacation for a week. We budgeted money in our trip that, for me, will mean doing some old tool hunting.

Santa brought me a 26 liter Festool dust extractor so that my sanity and hearing could be left intact. I still use ear protection but it’s much more reasonable on the ears. I also got a nice sturdy carpenters apron, as the laundry slave thinks it may help keep my clothes more intact. An additional micro plane shaver and sand paper and NO coal!

I was gifted with a new doweling jig, new Adria dovetail saw, and an out of print book on historical mouldings and turnings. not a bad haul. These were all surprises, and ironically all from my wish list from three years ago. I guess I must have been better this year than i was then.

Oh, and a new shop heater. guess I made out like a bandit.
BTW, my wife loves tools too, I got her a new drill and driver set, as she finds my set too heavy. how cool is that.

My wife used my LV cart as the guide to my gift list. I had been popping things on there for refrence for later.
Shop heater, 3m sandpaper on clearance, scrub plane, brass nails, staining pads, apron, picture frame book and some other stuff. I was surprised to see these items coming out of the wrapping paper, but did not have time to sort through and examine all of it. Definitely my best Christmas haul in memory.
Happy Holidays and best of the New Year to all
