I love it when a plan comes together. I've been telling my sister
that I'd fix her folding closet doors for a while now so they didn't
catch on the new carpet. She's been telling me for a while that she
doesn't know what to get me for Christmas. Hmmmm....what to do......
Have her order me the Veritas Low Angle Block Plane from Lee Valley -
that's what!!! Thanks Lynne!!!
But that's not all - my other sister got me the Veritas Sharpening
System (honing guide/angle jig) for my long dull chisels, which will
hopefully be here around the same time. (Amazon playing games with
shipping or something - shoulda gone direct to LV I told her.)
Now I'm REALLY ready to roll. The 1000/6000 grit combo waterstone
that I purchased through Amazon with a Borders gift certificate rounds
out the plan.
Heh. I guess this is a gloat. Sorry - I'm just psyched.
Also picked up a couple of those tapered round paintbrushes for a
painter that lets me borrow his ladders when I need them. He's on to
interior work now so hopefully they'll come soon too.
It's never too late.....I hope! Especially since SWMBO *still* hasn't
gotten hers from me yet. (thumping new computer speakers, though,
which she'll love)
I've sometimes toyed with the idea of doing all presents post-New
Year, but it seems to me that most of the good sales (on tools anyway)
happen before or right around Christmas. Of course you sure could
save a bundle on wrapping paper if you did wait.
