I got a spokeshave from Dave's Shaves...Looking to try it out.  I also got a new old mandolin and my son got a new old banjo.  Very good year!

great presents from my husband!!...the book "Made by Hand, Searching for meaning in a throwaway world" by Mark Frauenfelder - founder of Boing Boing and Editer in Chief of Make.
I hadn't heard of this book before but started it today and am liking it a lot...skimming ahead I see The Nation is mentioned in the chapter "Strumming and Stirring" : -)
I also got one of Tinyguitar's cigar box strummers, which I love!! - Put a video on yesterday of my first recording with it

A Panda Pillow pet from the daughter and a Yamaha MG102c Mixer from a friend of 30 plus years, not the wife... she just doesn't get it!...

Nut slotting files!!!!!!!

Drill press is on the way!!!!!!!

 

Can't wait until next Christmas.

oooh forgot, I also got this old postcard. My husband slotted it into a card as a Christmas card for me : -)
See if you can red the back...AMAZING!!!

That is a cool find! Original, not reproduction?

What makes that so awesome is the note, and the postmark! (Gulfport Mississippi, 1936)

I am guessing your not interested in selling that huh? :-)
