    It is not just making and/or selling something.......

    Light woodworking and engraving was very good to me in 2011.

    Yes, I enjoy making almost everything I sell.

    Yes, I enjoy selling most of the items I make or engrave.

    But I also get a very good feeling Christmas morning knowing that there are many gifts being opened all over the country that started life in my little shop.

    I also like the thought that most of these items will be with that family for many, many years, long after the typical retail store bought items are gone and forgotten.

    I know many of you give a lot of your work away and that some sell everything from small items to very large woodworking projects.

    We are a lucky bunch to be able to get this much positive return for something we love to do.


    Merry Christmas to all!
