|Am I really that bad?|
I was also fortunate enough to receive some gifts for the workshop.
|New additions to my sharpening kit.|
Thanks to the sale at Popular Woodworking, I also added some new DVD's to my collection. The next frontier for me will be saw sharpening and maintenance. Hopefully these will be a good start.
And of course, my little gift to myself, the vintage Stanley 246 I mentioned last week.
|A gift to myself.|
I was able to download a great deal of original information from the web and have begun the dis-assembly and cleaning process.
|After the bath, more work to do.|
Hopefully the weekend, will bring enough shop time to continue the process and make a major dent in the work remaining on this project. And maybe even a little time to start viewing the new DVD's to gear up for working on the mating saw. We shall see.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to my wife, children, and parents. I am truly blessed to have each of you in my life. I hope to spend many more birthdays with all of you.
