    The main gift, of course is the DowelMax. Everything else will help me to work with warm hands and feet outside, to see on off-site jobs with adequate lighting, to scrape really dirty material, and to be able to easily locate the right hex key.
    Cheers, Frank

    A doweling jig is the first thing I ever bought from Woodcraft Supply about 25+ years ago when they were a catalog mail order company. Wasn't the same one you have but very similar. I still use it, while I like the quickness of biscuit joining, there is nothing as good and strong as dowel joint (IMHO).

    Hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine !!

    Mine will have to wait for 3-4 weeks when my check comes in from the insurance company. I will be a 17" bs from Grizzly and a Hitachi combo router kit. The wife is starting to notice the nicer the tools the nicer the gifts that come out of the shop.

    A $100 gift card to Woodworker's Source. With all the great wood they have there, it won't last very long.

    My Grandaughter Isla (almost 8) picked out the handles. They are real rocks and Isla was very very excited about giving them to me. I will work with her to design some appropriate furniture for the handles.

    The Gorilla Gripper works well. I have already tried it on a 4x8 sheet of MDF which was something that I had difficulty moving in the past. No more

    These are stock photos, but I got a Ryobi Corner Cat sander which looks to be a pretty respectable corner sander.


    Also got the Hose Garage for my Festool vac which is something I never understood why they didn't have before.

    Wow Sean...you must have been a very good boy this year. Is this your first lathe? Whether it is or not, congrats. You got some great tools. (As did everyone else in this thread.)

    Matt, I know my little Ryobi 5" ROS has been a real workhorse...the corner sander looks like it'll be real handy.

    Nice hauls by all...
