A dove has arrived…
Or at least the tool for a doves tail!

Today I was so lucky that I found a little pack in my post box!

I opened it with great excitement,
and inside there was a beautiful little marking tool:

A dovetail marker, of Tamboti, ratio 1:8, and it’s not even Christmas yet.

The pack came from our wonderful and always positive Alba / Jamie.
Thank you so much, I know you even had to do it twice, since the post had vanished first time.

(So now it can be up to me to make us a set of 1:6…).

I hereby send you a big wonderful Lumber Jock Hug.

Best thoughts from my heart,

your friend,

One side is 1:6 the other is 1:8

to distinguish
the different ratios ?

I really prefer the handmade wooden ones, they feel so nice when you are using them and they look good too!

Jamie, that dovetail marker looks great!
I am sure Mafe will make great use of it. I see a new blog about dovetails in the horizon.

Ian, you might be right! I’m working on some dovetail DIY tools, but have cut my first dovetails (quite proud).
Napoleon, yes no one beats my coffee.

This is the kind of coffee we talk about! (Not my video).
Trevor, yes he is a wonderful man this Jamie.
Dez, I never had one before, so I prefere this one no doubt!
Dennis, yes I will soon find my christmas stuff, and start making decorations in the apartment, my mood is all there.
Tom, yes I will give him a kiss one day! The postman. He delivers my coffee too, so he is really important.
David, yes I’ll mark it so I will not f… it up… Laugh.
Jamie, thank you once more, I will never get tired of that.

Ha! Alba comes through with a multi use tool! Mads- that is some seriously labor intensive coffee. I bet it’s great- but hey- in the morning I am not all about working so hard for my coffee. I just hit the switch and hope the grounds go to the bottom of the glass pot. But if someone were to make it for me I would say ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. :)
