Vanity Finished and What did YOU get for Christmas?

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even in the workshop, cause the Vanity was finally done.









As it turns out our Christmas with the neighbors (and the little girl who is getting this piece) has been postponed a little bit (maybe tonight). We are very happy with the end result, just hope she is.







So for… Continue

Kreg Jig Dust Collection Attachment

1st impression when you hold this attachment in your hand:  "not much to it", Kreg sure is makin' $$ here.
