Don got me a full quality craftsman wood spoke shave! And a #3 Woodriver
bench plane. Then he flushed out my old hand carving set and got me 5 new
blades and a better sharpening stone (this small set for things like
dollhouse furniture, shadow boxes of the 3D european sort). Next, several
planks of 1/3inch deep 8 inch long and 3 inch wide cedar wood and some
similar bits in oak (all well cured). I'm plotting a 3D (back smaller than
front, 4 inches deep) shadow box. Oh and 3 small 'baby' clamps suitable for
this size wood. 2 Dog leg chisels (1/8 and 1/2 inch). Hehehe He knows me
Now what sort of trouble can Mommie get into next? The 2 dog leg chisels
anready got used. I needed to fix the design on the 'side by side' where
someone long ago haddamaged part of the pattern. Evened it out in 5 mins
flat with those bad-boys. I just was afraid to touch it's delicate
structure without the right sized tools and my blades were all beyond
repair. Much simpler with the right tool in the hand eh?
PS: Also Charlotte got me a pair of earrings. Cute little pink pearl
looking cluster for work. Quite professional looking for my 'suit and tie'
equivalent for ladies job.
