My last entry was about the endless winter….to come. We are still waiting! After a mild, pretty snow-free December, Minnesotans are wondering what happened and when the shoe will drop. It has been a great month of fairly comfortable temps in my unheated garage/shop. We still have not had a below zero to brag about, and only about six inches of total snow…and that has melted.
I have my thoughts set on some new projects and an upcoming trip back to Hawaii for the eighth time. I have a woodworking acquaintance on Kauai and plan to visit him. Maybe I can bring back some more Koa wood….
I want to wish all the JOCKS a Happy New Year, filled with lots of sawdust and new woodworking toys.

Thank-you, wishing you a mild winter and enjoy that trip. I’ve had to put my jacket on twice sofar this year and I’ve been carring the silly thing in my car for weeks…

Happy New Year!

Enjoy your trip, JB. Have a wonderful, relaxing and healthful trip. Bring back some Koa for me too!
