The_Samples.jpgThe Working Ends110 viewsSix examples made up using the supplier's standard whisk broom and cake tester designs, with corn straw packed per my request. The supplier is wondering whether buyers would want the somewhat decorative wrapping, as losing it might knock of a dollar or two in price. I say keep it, as it is comfortable in use.Charlie Driggs

Some_Previous_Galootaclaus_Gifts.jpgLast five years of Galootaclaus gifts (not all are shown)90 viewsThis isn't a fully complete photo, but it shows the diversity of gifts over four of my years of participation...

2003 was worth every minute of the wait - a Warner & Driggs woodie
2004 Stanley No. 15 try square, and No. 18 bevel gauge; both are well used
2005 Stanley 9-1/2 block plane and an MF chain drill; the comment enclosed leveled me -- a cherished gift
2006 Veritas year: marking gauge, spokeshave kit, striking knife and canvas apron
2007 paper thin turned bowl, tool holders, hand tools book

IMG_2799.JPGGalootaclaus 2016 15 views11 items, two for chunks of Bodark and Mesquite from Texas, two for chisels needing a boatload of care, a bit holder also needing some help, a box of #7 slotted flat heads from Sweden of all places, dual sheave blocks, a mystery #593 Stanley hammer without faces, a NIB set of 6 Greenlee Irwin style bits, some acid brushes, and a tubular thing that apparently grows that way - never saw anything like this before, but I'm guessing that grew in Texas too. Quite an assortment.Charlie DriggsDec 28, 2016
IMG_2082.jpgMortise & Tenon - Slit the envelope, and all this slides out24 viewsPacked in pine hand plane shavings, plain brown wrapper with a string tie, and note to the person gazing upon this for the first time, complete with real wax sealCharlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016
IMG_2083.jpgCloseup of the "introduction" to Issue #1 Mortise & Tenon27 viewsWhy, it's even written in 18th century English! Remember that "f's" are often "s's" ..Charlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016
IMG_0715.JPGMoxon vise 29 viewsThis is build to drop into the dog holes along the east edge of the bench. With a 20" opening between the screws and a 6" capacity, it can handle most all drawer boxes I would likely work on as well as any dovetail joints.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_5122.JPGsouth end of workbench25 viewsthe upper end of the two leg vises are visible in this shot. The advantage of being able to work from any side of this bench is particularly usable when making up panels for furniture, as being done in this shot.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_6685.JPGdetail of the older leg vise screw mount26 viewsThis may look a bit rough to some, but it is definitely a cleaner installation than the way it was mounted on my grandfather's 80, 90 or more years main bench. This one works quite wel. With two leg vises on the south end mounted 'in plane', it is quite easy to hold short sections (3-5 ft) of lumber for sawing to a line, although the height isn't ideal. Also very useful for holding items when needing to run round tenons with one of the hollow augers.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_1740.JPGbench -- looking from north to south, with general purpose bench25 viewsthe GP bench is on the right (grinders, etc); the neanderbuddy and occasionally used contractor size saw are both on rolling bases, which helps a great deal in this tight shop.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_0799.JPGhold down storage along the west side of the bench25 viewsThe stretchers were a major stiffener of this bench, as until these were added it would rack a bit when planing large boards. Adding them created storage for items otherwise awkward to fit close at hand.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
