The Official Christmas Gift Gloat List

Page 1 of 2  
Ok, maybe that's a bit presumptuous of me, but no one had yet started one so I figured I'd get one going.
Jay Pique, a Neander in the making, got the Camber Roller Assembly for the Veritas MK2 Honing Guide. http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx?c=2&pT181&cat=1,43072,43078&ap=1 They'd laugh me out of the shop at work, but there's something about a hand-planed table-top that makes me feel good.

Ok, I got absolutely nothing in the way of woodworking gifts, but friends of mine presented my cat with a sisal cat scratching pad. Since my cat is inordinately difficult to buy for, I think this counts since my cat went absolutely nuts for it.
She's been rubbing and rolling on this scratching pad for the last ten minutes and I'm perfectly delighted that she's happy with it.
That counts for a gloat as far as I'm concerned.

There's a new Woodcraft store about 2 miles from my home that opened about three weeks ago. I've been to the store once for a total of about 30 minutes.
I found out this morning that the entire staff at the store now knows my wife by site and have my name memorized.
List to follow... ;-)

I got the spokeshave shown on the link below.

I don't where to keep the Allen wrench though. :-)
My daughter ordered it one day and it was delivered the next day. She bought herself a chip carving knife set. I now will go the lumberyard to buy some basswood for her. I guess she will need a workmate, or a small workbench....Hmmm!
I guess I know what my next project will be.

Just out of curiosity, the Worksharp is similar in nature to the Veritas Mk.II power sharpening system. Has anyone compared the two and decided which is better or more capable, etc?
Thanks

Not compared specifically to the veritas, but some other similar, fairly close sharpening systems, and a good review/read thanks to charlieb:

That is quite a haul. That squarely puts you in the YOU SUCK category.

You're close. I just finished gutting, rewiring and drywalling the master bedroom. I've still have to make and install the moldings. What's holding up the works is I want to replace all the doors on the second floor with six panel oak doors but my wife is against the expense.

http://www.japanwoodworker.com/product.asp?s=JapanWoodworker&pf_id %2E303%2E06&dept_id790 Very nice. I would have settled for that, but got a set of carving gouges this time. Either would be just the thing for idling away the minutes while the shellac sets up enough to coat the flipside. While populating my own gift to myself, a set of bookcases, I unearthed a large collection of books, including one of FWW's early 80's books on jointery. The shop's need for a set of shoji doors became suddenly clear. I like bashing rectangular holes in things just for the sake of bashing rectangular holes, even without any specific end goal in mind. The gouges serve a similar need, just without the same potential for a useful end product. ;)

My wife finally found my Lee Valley wish list. She and the kids emptied it out. Beats books and shirts any year. Medium Shoulder Plane, bevel gauge, new jaws for my lathe chuck, and shaper scraper blades for my Stanley 66. It is going to a good day in the shop tomorrow. I got a mini-gloat to boot. I found a solid mahogany hutch on desk on craigs list for free. It was poorly made and the wide panels were splitting because of crossgraining when they built it. I ended up taking it apart and salvaged about 30 board feet of mahogany. Not a bad couple of days lately.

Santa left me the new DeWalt plunge saw. Santa's helper hid the tracks (59" and 102"). Unbelievably and embarassingly she hid the 102" track in my small basement shop and I never saw it. She mixed it into a rack of about 100bf of red oak.
I have be wanting one of the track saws. Since I have a smallish shop, I usually cut down full plywood sheets before bringing them into the shop. Now that is going to be much better.

I, for one, would be very appreciative if, at some point down the road, you gave a report on your track saw.
