Question What did Santa bring?

Santa was pretty good to me this year. He was a bit confused about all the tool jargon, so he did the next best thing and just left cold, hard cash in my stocking.

WoodRiver #4 Plane - Finally got a #4! I've been using a WoodRiver #5 for everything, and while it's the jack plane, I'm happy to add something smaller. Almost pulled the trigger on a Lie-Nielsen, but I've been satisfied with the WoodRiver brand and wanted to spread my budget around a bit more.

Veritas Large Shoulder Plane - Tenons are a weakness for me, so I'm hoping the addition of this tool will help me achieve that perfect fit.

I also got a couple of Rockler 12" wooden handscrew clams, and a few clothing items to help keep me warm in the shop over the winter months.

Santa came early this year, and next, and probably a couple of birthdays. I got a Ryobi all electric riding lawnmower. 38" cut, 2 hours of run time, rack and pinion steering, cruise control, cup holder, and a USB port for the personal electronics. Yeah, it's not a wood working tool, but it cuts my mowing time in half, giving me more shop time.

Well sorta wood working. A Echo CS620P chainsaw. This is a larger saw than the home owner Sthil MS250 I have had for years. Should help make shorter easier work of some clearing I need to do!

The results of which can be used for projects!

I must have been really bad this year. Instead of a lump of coal Santa brought me a bad cold.

My son gave me a Harbor Freight tool chest on wheels and a huge mechanics' set of stuff. Now I won't have to share tools between my basement and garage any more.

Santa was pretty good to me this year. I got a Bosch router, router bit set, a dovetail pull saw, Stanley/Bailey 16-401 chisel set, and sharpening stones.

Please tell me about the dovetail pull saw you got and how you like it. I am in the market for a good pull saw for dovetails.

This was the saw I got.

I haven't tried making any dovetails yet and honestly, I wouldn't be a good person to give a review based on dovetails since I'm not good at them to begin with, but the saw itself cuts like a hot knife through butter.

Foodie things for my 2019 quest to "Eat My Freezer." It was empty when I bought it.

My D1 and SIL gave me a 'C' profile crooked knife blade from Kestrel Tool.
It's about 1/3 bigger than I imagined it would be.
As usual, I will make up my own handle to fit my hands and surface haft the blade in the traditional style.

Interesting ... it sounds like we are similar ... I am not very good at dovetails either, and was thinking that the same saw looked like the one to get. Is there much flex to it, or does the back do a good job of keeping it straight?

The back keeps it very rigid. I didn't feel or notice any flex in the blade when doing some test cuts.

I ended up getting one of these, and love it. Nice and stiff, and it cuts very easily. Thanks for the tip!

Santa bought himself a WEN variable-speed bench grinder back in November, and thereby forfeited any claim to further goodies for the next several months.
