    Great Gift from dad

    We had Christmas with my parents today and my dad suprised me with a Thompson 1/2" bowl gouge and a beautiful cherry handle he turned for it!! Of course I have to go back tomorrow so will have to wait 24hrs to try it out!!

    Thanks again dad!!

    Hi Jeff,

    Any turning tool by Doug is a wonderful thing...a treasure to hold, love and use. AND 50 years from now, it will still remind you of your dad. What could be better.

    Enjoy,

    Rob, we had both had a bit of wine by the time gifts were opened so the shop was off limits and then last night we had some friends stop over (with more wine ) so I have to wait until tonight...I did manage to get the handle put on though.

    LOL Jeff that was probably a wise idea after the wine. I had the same problem. Opened some tools for Christmas but had a couple of glasses of wine so thought the better part of valor was to just stay out of the shop.
