    Hello -- again :)

    Hello Folks,

    I was active during the first several months of FWW, then I left to pursue other interests. I'm back now because I've dusted out the basement workshop and I'm back at it. I feel much better talking about woodworking when I'm actively doing it.

    I've done a bit of browsing, and it's good to see familiar names and faces. Good to see lots of new contributors around too.

    I've been working on storage solutions in my shop -- badly needed. I've got one or two "real" projects on the notepad that I'll be getting at soon. I hope to be able share some projects and likely ask for some advice too, down in the handtool forums.



    Happy Holidays and warm wishes to all! And I hope all your LN and Festool wishes come true
    All the best,
    Ian G

    Obviously meant for those of us with Festool taste and Ryobi pocketbooks.

    Thanks Guys

    Well, what to say?

    Rennie - no Fes or LN or even an old orphaned Stanley under my tree. My only indulgence this year was to buy a lapping plate from Lee Valley. I figure I'll get all my plane soles, irons and chisel backs properly flat by the time the next summer olympics roll around. I'll be calling for a bulk tanker to take away all the filthy oil and swarf any day now.

    For you, Larry - how can you improve on perfection? You look pretty good with your young sidekick there. Is this related to that Celtic wedding you got all dolled up for many months ago?

    And Darren is is looking mighty purdy with those pearly whites lighting up his face. I think it's time he starts looking after the rest of his mug, though

    Seasons Greetings to All

    Ian

    What can I say, I was hoping the hat would help. Still much better looking than my real mug.

    Merry Xmas Ian!

    Having met Darren, I have to strongly disagree with this statement.

    Xmas evening

    Hi Chuck, Nancy and Stu

    Chuck, your clothes threw me a bit until I checked out your website. Treasure chests, pirates and like that. Either that or a biker who likes to wear a dew rag and a puffy shirt Nice to meet you, man.

    Nancy, I don't have any trouble believing that Darren is better looking than a porker. But that's a pretty good looking pig

    Thanks Stu, glad to be back. What's this, about month 28 for FWW? I'm sure there were plenty who never gave it 6 months. It's great to see it's here and ticking along very well.

    Next up for me will be some things to organise my books. I'm thinking of an open corner shelf with drawers on one side. A bit asymmetrical, but I think it will suit the spot I have in mind for it. It's only exists on paper right now, so it could turn out to be anything

    And I want to make some book slides -- sliding bookends sort of things. I saw some on the Antiques Roadshow and I liked them. I'm going to lock up the power tool cupboard for this job - use it to tune up my hand tool chops.

    I'll keep the camera at hand in case I manage to create anything worth sharing
    All the best,
    Ian G
