Since i just accumulate tools/material as needed or opportunity arises, Christmas is more for the nice shirt & sweater. I did give SWMBO a Rockler glue kit to "surprise" me with--when i saw this thread last night, i asked her what happened to it...it's in a stack of stuff to wrap for her family's Christmas gathering on Saturday!!
I was blessed with enough time to finish a toy chest for Grandson #1 (he'll be 2 in February Dan--they are a great gift!!), attached the lid & supports yesterday afternoon and we'll deliver it today. And by getting SWMBO a new set of pans (she's a great cook, so stepping up to Calphalon Tri-Ply thrilled her)--i got a new project in creating a wall rack to store them on. Can't wait to get started, i'm thinking oak framework with a gridwork of chain for hooks with a slanted lid storage (think saw blade storage rack). If it works out, i won't have to go to the kitchen to get pans out of the top of the pantry for her any more!!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all!!
