For my secret Santa I received a box of usefulness. Unfortunately, Santa was anonymous so I cannot say thank you properly, but I am very grateful.

I got a handy tape measure to keep in my pocket at all times, a set of mitre clamps and an extension lead that I haven't seen the likes of before. It is a handy length, but more usefully the sockets are spaced out along the length rather than just being at the end. This is perfect for my garage set up where I only have a double socket. Santa knew me well because I dread mitres because I have no suitable clamps, and I frequently have to estimate things using a foot or hand (not horses).

Thank you Santa, and thanks Phil.

An incredible set of marking knives, I’m utterly blown away. Lovely Christmas card with info on the knives and box, O1 tool steel, curly koa and ebony for the handles, walnut box with zebrano lid, base, and splines.

I’ve always used cheap throw away craft knives for my marking out and they have bevels on both sides of the blade that I think upsets my set up. A proper marking knife is something I’ve been thinking about for a while, secret Santa how did you know!

Phil thanks for all your hard work setting this up, seasons best wishes to all UKW and your families.

Lucky me!

A beautifully re-handled Howarth chisel (not only properly sharpened but superbly flattened, you'll be seeing this put to good use in forthcoming WIPs), a really useful set of gauge blocks (no more fiddling around with drill bits to set router plunge depths), and an amazingly turned pen (way too good for workshop use).

What a fabulous Christmas gift!

Many thanks to my generous but anonymous benefactor, many thanks to Phil for organising it all, and a very merry Christmas to everyone on the forum!
