    Are you decorating your shop for Christmas?

    This year, I had planned to make some wooden figures to place on the roof of my shop and of my garage –but I never got around to it. Maybe next year.

    In the meantime, I found some strings of lighted “tools” at lights Rockler (http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?p...&filter=29059). I couldn’t resist buying two strings and placing a string on the inside of each of the shop windows that can be seen from our house. Here are a couple of (not very good) pictures:

    They have only been up a couple of days but have already drawn several favourable comments.
    Cheers, Frank

    No. We're lucky to get a string of lights up on the house

    Which the wife just got put up before this 1" of ice hit us last night.

    Still calling for 10-15" of SNOW on top of this ice

    Frank, I was looking at those lights in the flyer that came in yesterday. The add didn't tell what size they are, but your pic makes that clear. I may have to get a set for the house, not my shop of course. I think my wife would understand.
