I want to give heartfelt thanks to my SS, who has made possibly the nicest fly box I've ever seen. It's a truly unique design and already has been put to use holding a few new flies. I'm blown away by it. And the bottle of whiskey was the cherry on top of the cake. Thanks again, and to all that took part!

Loads of thanks to my Secret Santa. What a lot of goodies just suitable for me!
A hand turned Christmas tree bauble
A hand turned carving mallet
An electronic pocket level (which will be really useful for my boatbuilding)
A book on making woodworking jigs
A book on landscape photography
A cycling water bottle
Wow, what a lot and some good skills too in the handmade items.
I'll look at them properly when the granddaughters let me!

Great to see so many interesting and varied gifts, really good show, well done everyone for all the hard work and effort.

Thank you Santa for my excellent, very well made and useful gift, a pair of bench pups and dogs. I look forward to putting these to good use.

Thanks again to Phil for organising this great annual event, really good fun and a showcase for members talents and kindness.

Merry Christmas forum friends.

I'll start the thread in case anyone needs to start early. Keep this thread for photos only for future search purposes, please, you can always post them in the original thread as well for a bit of chat. It'll save people wading through loads of pages in the future when they only wish to look at the pictures.
And here's why Santa didn't make it to everyone this year, - Norwegian wind turbines:

Don't expect too much in 2022. Happy New Year!

My secret Santa has set me a task for the New Year. Lovely pieces of Padauk and Panga Panga to turn into masterpieces (cough, splutter). I'll try to do them justice.🤔 Also a beautifully made dough knife for my bread. Thank you secret Santa and once again well done Phil for all the skilful organisation 👏👏👏

Look at the beautiful Secret Santa gifts, how beautiful are these. I have been truly spoilt.
The note / drawing / draft books are beautiful, the paper weight, the texture, they even have page contents, which is fab when you want to find a certain page you have designed your next masterpiece - and pages have feint dotted pages so you can draw straight lines.
The beautiful pen set and elegant gift/storage box - English Burr Elm (stabilised)
Elegant Wine Stopper - Apple
Awe inspiring turned bowl - Walnut

Thank you again Secret Santa

I have been looking at all the posts and i can only say wow - they are all great gifts everyone has received.
You are all very talented and obviously love your hobby.
Wishing you all a safe and Happy New Year

Sorry for the delay in posting the awesome gifts I received from my not so Secret Santa. He is not so secret as we both had to fill out custom declarations, Phil had asked if we were ok with sending parcels abroad, anyway I digress.
Thank you ever so much my not so secret Santa the gifts are amazing,
I got a turned box, an immense amount of skill would have gone into making it,
3 large Cedar burl blanks and one extra large yellow Cedar stabilised burl blank
I will be saving all the blanks for pens that will be kept in my own private collection, at least 1 will be turned into a fountain pen.
2 woodworkers pen kits with spare tubes and some good quality spare lead refills
2 bottles of genuine Canadian maple syrup. In all my years I have never had or tasted maple syrup so I will baste the next ham I get with it.
Finally I got something that money can't buy, a new Canadian friend.

Fully agree, the box both looks and feels amazing.
It will have a forever place on show in our living room and be permanently on show.

wow, I’m totally humbled by your comment, Gary. I too have gained a new friend! As per the box I was trying to make a Jakob Weisflog box
( woodturner from Germany). You have given me some amazing ideas. I’m going to make some new ones with multiple boxes that all rotate open around the other box.
Here. is the inspiration I took the box from.

I have never seen anything like the box you kindly sent to me, and to my eye it is perfect.
I have put the lid on the correct way now after your message, Only 2 ways to put a lid on, the right way and the wrong way, trust me to pick the second option :eek:
I am very keen to see your new ideas actually come to fruition and can say if they are anything like the quality of the one sent to me then I am sure they will be a great success and popular on these forums. They will be known as the Lefley boxes :LOL:
