    Toni C Made My Year.

    Hi,

    Sometimes a person or event can make your day. Well Toni, Ciuraneta that is, made my whole cotton pickin year. A package came to Glenn's house from Toni. Glenn was ready to open it when he saw MY name on it. Glenn called and asked if he should open it. I said, "Heck no. If it is from Toni, I want to."

    Anyway, I went up to Glenn's and opened my mail. It was a knock your sox off package. Inside, packed in wood shavings (of course) was a beautiful wood plane that Toni made. It had Hock iron and was already tuned.

    Toni wasn't sure of the size of my hands so he left the top unfinished so I could shape it for little o'le me. Glenn and I couldn't wait. So it was out to the shop and we planed away on several kinds of wood. The picture is mahogany. We even used it on one kind of wood---I forgot its name---that Glenn said was tougher than nails. That was fun!

    Glenn took some pictures. I got them today. The old goat in the pictures isn't me---its my great grandfather. Enjoy the pics. I'm sure enjoying the plane.

    Hey Toni! THANKS!!!

    Jim
