Default Did Santa Come Down Your Shop Chimney?

Well, Christmas is here and I know the majority of us all hope Santa brings some sort of tools or accessories for our woodworking shop.
What did Santa bring you this year? (you can leave out the new ties, sweaters..etc.)

“Each step of every Wood Art project I design and build is considered my masterpiece… because I want the finished product to reflect the quality and creativeness of my work. I study each piece to get ideas and details that will evolve in my future creations.

I knew there was a very good reason to put out the blaze in the fireplace....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

See Stick you have no one to blame but yourself . Well that and the fact that your way to far off the beaten path for Santa to find

I'm going to consider my Incra 43/17 table top and the two PC75182's and the incra 25 positioner with fence and V2 lift my Christmas gift . Just been collecting parts all year is all . It's Christmas most days of the year for me . Only good thing being singles got going for it I guess

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Woodworking stuff is a set of bowl gouges, a wood burning kit, a broad hatchet, a Stern countersink, Microjig Gripper and some odds and ends.

No tools but someone in my family (it's a mystery, but SWMBOJr is expecting in Feb...) got me Les Neufeld's book 'Making Toys to Teach'.
ISBN978-1-56158-606-6 ...Taunton Press
Some great stuff in there!

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!!

After having a discussion last year ( http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...ress-vise.html ) about needing a new drill press vise, Santa finally read about it here and saw it on my AMAZON wish list. It is now residing in place, waiting for me to drill holes or whatever. It for sure isn't a heavy duty vise, being made in a far off land with cheap labor reusing melted down retired Chevrolets for the castings, but it will do whatever I'll need it for - Woodstock D4082 4-Inch Cross-Sliding Vise. Then there were the three Norm inspired LL Bean flannel shirts .....
