Merry Christmas!

It's that time of year again, the lights are glowing, the eggnog is flowing, and there are new tools! Santa brought me the Work Sharp 3000 so maybe now I can actually put an edge on those planes and USE them. It's a pretty slick little unit, but I tried it with an old cheap chisel and I can see it will take some practice. I also got a bonus leather hone accessory with it. Nice!

The spouse got a lot of little scroll saw accessories, including a sample pack of the Flying Dutchman blades. Hopefully all this "stuff" will actually get the spouse out in the shop and using that lovely scroll saw.

I got a pre-Christmas gift as well. Canadian Tire had their 12 inch mini lathe on sale for $110.00 so I figured for that price I could give turning a try. It's not a priority right now.

The holidays have seriously cut into my shop time and I have a lot of catching up to do out there. Right now I am in the middle of building my air cleaner/downdraft sanding table/table saw out feed table combo unit. It's been on hold for over a week now. Come on people CHRISTMAS IS OVER! Let me get back in the shop!
