Over on his blog, Christopher Schwarz has been writing the 2014 Anarchist’s Gift Guide since Dec, 1. I’m starting a little late with my 2014 Sybarite’s Gift Guide…because too much self-indulgence leads to blackouts (apparently), and causes one to not realize it’s already a new month.
Like Chris’s, the woodworking-related gift ideas I’ll be presenting are 100-percent unsponsored. But unlike Chris’s, these are not items likely to be found in too many stockings…unless you’ve been an very good girl or boy indeed.
While I have been able to buy a couple of the items on my forthcoming list (for which I count myself a lucky girl), most of them, I have not…and likely never will. But hey – what’s life without a little dreaming!
I’ve used a slightly less rarefied version of this plane (the Bridge City Tool Works HP-7, on which the ergonomics are excellent (even for my small hands) and the performance is every bit as good as you’d expect.
And this HP-11 is shinier. (What can I say…my kinda bling!)
