If family members are pestering you for suggestions of things they should get you for Christmas, it’s difficult to say you really want a $15,000 wide-belt Timesaver.
But if you don’t speak up, you’re gonna get a necktie or worse.
Every year I publish a gift guide on my blog at Popular Woodworking Magazine that is comprised of small things that you will find really useful but won’t destroy your daughter’s $20 gift limit. The first five entries are up now.
Read Day 1 of the gift guide here: Clauss Scissors.
Day two on a Boot Tray for Sharpening.
Day three on humidity monitors.
Day four on a MWTCA membership is here.
Day five on the Arno burnisher is here.
If you’d like to read gift guides from past years, check this link.

P.S. As always, this gift guide is sponsored by absolutely no-%^&*%$-one.

Are you in cahoots with the Acme Boot Tray Company? They probably send you free boot trays in return for your “honest review “. Sharpening tools would be a simple task, if someone was sending me free boot trays all the time. I think the only reason you blog is to show off your boot tray (which is very shallow in my opinion). Thanks for the idea Mr Schwarz, but really, who in thier right mind can justify spending $3.99 for some tool sharpening accessory?
You got me. The boot tray cartel controls all media. Even me.
I bought a pair of Clauss scissors from Lie Neilsen 2 years ago and they are great. Just added your dressmaker shears to it from Amazon.
Schwarz’d again, Amazon is out of stock on the shears, that cxld my order
Scissors ✂… Yes. I ran my head in the wall with those as well, only didn’t come across the Clauss, so I wound up springing $70 for one of these – comes in both left and right: http://www.germanysolingen.com/germany-solingen-scissors/tailor-scissors.php
…so there went the gift budget.
No complaints though – fabulous strong stuff, and it never yet failed me. Of course any scissor will be ruined by wire and the like, and this one is no exception.
…dead link. It seems it is much harder to find now than then. Anyway – German site still carries it – €99 for a 10”. This is carbon steel – not to confuse with the (cheaper) black handled very similar stainless steel ones.
