I’d like to say that I have given this editorial the time and consideration it deserves, but the fact is I am just too busy. I mean, this is December, right? And what are woodworkers doing in December? Making the presents they could have made in September, October or November, duh! (This is made even more complicated for me by the concerts, get-togethers and “family time” my wife keeps coming up with — after all, this is December, right?)
So, please give me a bit of a pass today, because I have too much stuff to do. But with that in mind, I would love to see what you are making for your loved ones this holiday season. Snap a picture and send it my way. Your fellow woodworkers will likely love the inspiration for next year. (Or maybe even this year!)
