« Part 39: A three day weekend… Part 40 of 52 Weeks series Part 41: Craft Fair coming quickly!! »

So this past Friday was my birthday and my wife and daughter presented me with some nice small gifts.


My DW looked at my Lee Valley wish list and got me a couple of things. Looking forward to using them all, including the Gimlets. Even though I love my drill press I do like the quiet of the simple hand tools once in awhile. The wood came from the local wood store and I am pretty sure it is a piece of Padauk. Perhaps I will work on something to give her for Christmas from it :)

In other news, I am happy to say that I completed 6 of the Ox Yoke Puzzles for the upcoming craft fair. Man it is coming fast now, only 2 weekends left and I am working on of them. My goal is to have everything completed no later then the 1st though the fair is that following weekend. I spent the day making up soem earring parts for DW to make for the fair as well then cleaned up the shop a little bit in order to set up my scroll saw to make cut up puzzles. I have about 4 different ones to make and am going to attempt to double stack cut them in order to make 2 puzzles at a time. Then a few more simple peg puzzles I think.

Oh and next week I will post some of other large cut outs I have done at work for the Halloween Program.

Hope you all have a good week in and out of the shop.
