Fellow Lumberjocks, It’s time for the next swap. A shop tool swap

Note: This swap is in no way officially sponsored by, run by, or otherwise tied to “LumberJocks” as a company or organization, or to any of the parent or sibling holdings thereof. It is simply run by those of us who participate on LumberJocks.
If you have not participated in one of our LumberJocks Shop Made Swaps before, Welcome! It’s relatively simple; each participant makes their swap item(s) and will get a name and address via e-mail after the “progress picture” deadline to where they will be mailing their entry. Postage is to be paid by the sender. The LumberJock who you’re shipping to, as well as the one who is shipping to you, will be selected randomly. Unless there are special circumstances – like the need for international shipping – I will not influence who anyone is paired with. Rules for this swap
- Teaser shots are allowed, but please do not post full in-progress or finished pictures until after the reveal date. Remember we want everyone to be surprised when they receive their package!
- A progress pic (sent to me) will be required NO LATER THAN the due date listed near the end of this post. The progress pic needs to show that you’ve put sufficient time and work into the project to be able to complete it by the ship date. Anyone who doesn’t e-mail me a progress pic or let me know why they haven’t by 11:59 pm EST on the due date will be dropped from the list of participants. What we’re making
We’re making shop tools. This can be anything you use in the shop for your woodworking. If you do metal work as well those tools work also. F.E. but not limited to screwdrivers, marking guages, layout tools, mallets or anything you want to make. Use any materials you would like. Bonus items
Bonus Items are completely optional and are not in any way required or expected. Bonus items do not have to be related to the swap theme, or even woodworking for that matter. Nobody’s expecting anything other than swap items though, so don’t feel any obligation whatsoever to add anything extra. How to sign up
Post below letting me know that you are in and then send an e-mail to [email protected] containing ALL of the following information:

- LumberJocks Username

- Real Name

- Email address

- Shipping Address, including country

- Let me know if you are not willing to ship internationally (so I can make sure I pair any non-US participants accordingly) I will be keeping a list of confirmed participants below that I will update periodically. If you don’t see your name on the list within a day or two of e-mailing me, shoot me another e-mail or PM so I don’t miss anybody.
Progress pictures will also be sent to the above e-mail address no later than the due date given below.
Your recipient’s name and address will be sent to you from the same e-mail address so make sure it’s not caught by your spam filter.
Important dates
In order to participate, you need to adhere to the dates below. Failure to do so will result in you getting dropped from the swap. If you can’t make the progress picture or ship dates, please make sure to notify me immediately Register for swap, please register by: 10/1/21
Progress picture, please send by: 10/18/21
Ship date, please ship by: 11/12/21
Reveal date: 11/22/21 No final pics until this date. Let the recipient post a pic or two before the sender posts their “formal” pics and project entry. We may reveal earlier if everyone has received their package before the reveal date.
 Other Stuff:
When you post your projects, use the tag “shop tool swap 2021” so we can all easily find the projects in one spot.
This is a collaborative learning experience for all of us so make use of this forum thread to share knowledge and ideas as well asking questions and getting advice. These swaps are about the journey more than the destination!
Notice, in order to participate in a swap you must be a member in good standing in the lumberjocks community. The moderator can not be expected to, and will not act as a go between for banned or blocked members
Credit for most of this goes to Dave P

Thanks for setting it up, Keebs! I’m watching. Will probably join in, but I need to make a little progress on two other projects for around the house (both need to be wrapped up by Christmas) before I pull the trigger.

Hmm, not much of a tool maker, unless you’re a turner then I have some cool tools and jigs… but I’m marking the post just to see what you guys start throwing around.

I think I will join in depending on the healing. Looks like I will be able to do some woodworking by then. I will make my decision by the end of September. That gives me 3 or 4 weeks more healing time.

I’m out on this one but I’ll be hanging out. I’ve vetoed two Christmas gift ideas from my wife in the interest of time. I think I’d be in trouble if I joined a swap…

I’m angling for a really good gift this Christmas WM1 so I figure I better stay out rather than having to get out ;-)

That is a lovely box though :-)

I’m watching with the rest of the nuts since I have to get the work bench finished. I haven’t worked on it in over a month and, until it is finished, I really don’t have any work space. Plus I always get too distracted when I’m working on a swap item and forget about all of the other stuff I need to get done in the shop.
