Twas The Night Before Christmas

Comments (0)

A woodworking twist to the classic yule tide poem…

Twas

the night before Christmas,
when all through the
woodshop
Not a creature was
stirring, not even the bench dog
stops.

The tools were all put away in their cabinets with 
care,

In hopes that the artisan soon would be
there.

The woodworker was nestled all snug in his 
bed,

While visions of new projects danced in his
head.

And mamma in her kitchen, and new tools in my
lap,

Had just settled in with our gifts from
Woodcraft.

When out in the shop, the tools were a

clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the
matter.

 Away to the Woodshop
I flew with a
gust,
I opened the door and raised some
sawdust.

 When, what to my wondering eyes would appear,

But my favorite woodworkers using plans
to make new projects to
share.

With Scott Phillips of The American Woodshop using
the new Kreg ToolBoxx Screw
Kit,
his cabinets would be done,
lickety-split.

Rob Cosman was teaching with a NEW WoodRiver

Plane,
sharpening and honing with the Angle Saw
Trainer.
Then picking up his Dovetail Bone Resin
Saw
and teaching online workshops with students in
awe!

There’s Tommy Mac of Rough Cutbuilding furniture and

more,
with Eli, Steve and Al on the Woodworking
floor!
With the 5 horse power 20″ Jet for
Planing,
their new chairs were soon ready for
caning.
And using a WoodRiver Hand Plane for
smoothing
Tommy’s table top is ready for
staining.

 The NEW Festool MFK

Router
made building a recipe box a breeze for my
daughter.

While finishing was easy with the NEW Festool Random ETS Orbital

Sander
Her gift was complete, I could then
hand her.

Now there’s a new Drill PressDust CollectorDVD’s, and

Books!
New Pen KitsPen BlanksVix Bits, and the NEW Powermatic 4224B Lathe with turner,
Nick Cook!!

 On the bench top, new Chisels!

CountersinksCarving ToolsCatches, HaspsDowels and
Briwax,
Trashed was my old wood from splinters and
cracks!

To the back of the shop, to the top of the
wall,
New wood was stacked, plenty for
all!

As dry wood cut by the Saw Stop Table Saw

flies,
When they meet
with an Oneida Dust Deputy II,
where the Festool Dust Filter
lies.

So back to the house the family they

flew,
With a handful of finished projects and Dad the woodworker
too!

I drew in my head, and was turning

around,
he got into his truck, and headed for
town.

For it was our Woodcraft Santa,
with an empty red sack.
As he left one last gift,
the Portamate 6-Shelf Wood Rack!

He gave a salute and with a twist of his head,

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
Gave the “Tool Man” simian grunt, arr, arr, arr!

“Happy Woodworking Christmas to all, and to all… a Good-Night!”

Merry Christmas Everyone…Frank!
