Not everyone last year bothered posting their SS gifts, lets see if we can break another record and have everyone doing a nice piccy post.

A stunning marking knife:
mk1.jpg

This is my favourite form of marking knife by far - vee point bevel one side only - flips left to right and gets into corners etc. For years I have preferred the japanese basic one (Axminster) so this is a beautifully made upgrade!

Very fine work indeed, excellent blade, precision everywhere, and a very fine handle!

The maker even initialled and dated the blade. Very many thanks, it will be my first choice marking knife from now on. And congratulations on such fine workmanship.
(Sorry the pics aren't great, Santa forgot my new Nikon D700 then :( )

Hmmm... second attempt (first post seems to have disappeared into the ether!)

Herewith my gift.

I am so thrilled. This is the best awl I have ever seen - which makes it the best awl of all!

I am very grateful to my secret Santa - I cannot find words - stunned into speechlessness!

My present is an extremely nice handmade carpenters square with brass parts and I think a Rosewood handle? Thank you to my SS. It's just what I needed and I'm really thrilled with it.

EDIT: I've just noticed that there's initials stamped into the base of the handle - RHB.....

Hello,

I've received a really well made screwdriver set with a turned handle. Looks like it involved both metalwork and turning.Timber is lovely and smooth. Is it Zebrano?

Thanks Tony (Escudo)

Cheers

David

Greetings to all my forum friends.

Here is a picture of the lovely mallet from my secret santa. Thanks Santa, I am going to have to get my thinking cap on to work out your identity? Thanks also for the kind and thoughtful greetings in your card. Let's hope 2012 is a good year for all of us, especially healthwise.



This event brings out all the best attributes of the forum, and I agree with Waka the gifts this year are great.

David, I am pleased you like your baby screwdriver gift. The turned handle is made from Bocote (Mexican Rosewood). I have use this wood before and it seems to darken in colour with age. It is lovely to turn and polish.

Thanks Waka for all your efforts with this years event, great fun and entertainment.

Cheers, Tony.

Merry Christmas everyone! This year I was a very lucky one, I had TWO SS, due to confusion Waka thought that I might end up with no prezzie this year so he took upon himself to send me one of these




Trust me photo doesn't do it justice this is a thing of beauty and very very comfortable in the hand. I think it might be rosewood, possible a ofcut piece of that beautiful tool cabinet:)? BIG THANK YOU Waka guys like you make this forum great and I hope that I'll get a chance to reprocitate in future.

And then just in time for Christmas I have received another present



Great read already answered a few questions that have been bothering me for a while, THANKS SS

PS I hope that pictures workout it's been a while since I've sent any

Some lovely gifts this year, as always of course. Well done Waka for the organisation. I hope you have a great Holiday. You deserve it.

I have yet to post pics of my lovely SS gift/s but will do so this evening. Had to rush about taking a poorly cat (Not mine) to the Vet, so things is a bit 'ectic 'ere.

I am glad my SS recipient liked his pressie; It's found a good home. I am sure you'll get some good service from it and I hope it 's okay that I wasn't able to make it myself this year. As I can't take the credit for the fine workmanship, three of us now know the truth :wink:

Enjoy!

Regards and warmest wishes

John :ho2

Like Alex...I was also a lucky boy this year! Total confusion last week when TWO packages arrived, one marked "secret santa" so that was a bit of a give-away...and the other marked "for the 25th of December"....mmm the plot thickens.

So...the official secret santa pour moi this year is these beautiful pens from Jensmith (Jennifer)...



One is in "olive maple" and the other acrylic "Arctic Rocks".....some wonderful workmanship and I am really made up with these as I can now officially claim ownership without the rest of the family disappearing with my posh pens!



The figuring is wonderful on both the maple and the acrylic...nice work Jennifer...I will cherish them!

My other gift was from my dear buddy Chris who sent me this classic piece of cast steel....



...a beautiful antique cast iron hexagonal burnisher....very unusual...so unusual I can find no reference to the design on Google...but it's old...



....as we can see from the font! I sharpened a knife with it and I will be doing so again...it was razor sharp after a few strokes!

Thanks Chris!

Cheers guys and gals and

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!

And a HUGE thanks again to WAKA for his superb effort this year!

Jim

Hi folks,

Here are my SS gifts, from someone with an eye for detail and the ability to produce fine work. In particular the smart pieces of marquetry on each item. Someone's trademark I am sure.

I don't know if my SS knew I am in the process of making a new bench, but theses are ideal ancillaries.
The 'slide' on the shooting board is fashioned from some kind of nylon sheet, and should last a lifetime, as well as being very 'slick', for easy use. I am most grateful and these will have pride of place at my workbench. Many Thanks to my SS

Thanks also to to Waka for all your efforts on behalf of all of us. Full Marks!
Best wishes to everyone for a grand New Year.

John :ho2
