oh how I love the smell of new tools

I went to home depot with David the other day. He works as a carpenter and does other stuff on the side so he almost lives at that place. But I love that he always finds good deals for me and he knows a ton about tools. He spotted this awesome scroll saw for me as he knows I've been wanting to make nice shapes out of this tiger wood and birds eye maple I bought and then bezel set them. The saw was under $100 so I jumped on it. Now I just have to figure out where to fit it in the studio :o)


  1. Looks cool!

    Be careful with it! ;)

  2. I know the feeling. Even though my tools are computer related nowadays.

  3. LOL he made me promise to wait with using it until he has shown me what to do. I think he's worried that I will cut my fingers off.. And he's probably right.. I tend to go for things without knowing exactly what you are supposed to do...

  4. he he we are definitely tool sistas! You *know* how much I love new tools! Can;t wait to see some fruits of its and your labour!!

  5. I am such a tool junkie. I would love to have one of the scroll saws for metal. Have fun but be careful....can't wait to see what you come up with.


I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
Please forgive me if I don't respond personally to you.
I always try but sometimes time just flies away!
