What would be one thing you don't have regarding tools that you want for Christmas?

I for one would like a fancy belt sander on a stand.

I'd like a kiln.

And a nice big workshop to put it in.

And a constantly available technician to help me work it. :D

I'm with you Sandra on the bigger workshop.

and a CNC milling or punch machine, but I don't think Santa will ever deliver one of those, no matter how good I've been all year

Hey Max, you are going to love that thing. I got one last year for Christmas and I don't know how I got along without it.

This year I got a tile/stone cutting table saw, mortising chisel attachment for my drill press and some odds and ends. I hope to get a few more tools on Christmas from my folks.

After about 10 years of asking for tools for my birthday and Christmas, I have gotten some cool stuff. All I need now is a bigger place for them!!!

Good luck everyone! :)

As I'm just starting out learning about clay a fully stocked studio would be my wish. As that won't happen in my life time I'll settle for sculpting tools and an electric kiln for the garage.

ooh Max your killing me :)- but I am glad at least one person from this forum got a new one. Enjoy it! Now I will think of you every time I window shop for one.

Gotta' start somewhere.........so Santa brought me a box of air dry clay and a set of boxwood shapers.

Phyllis, I just finished reading your reply have you used air dry clay before? I just got some too!
What are your thoughts about it?
Max and some of the others on this forum have been really helpful to this clay newbie..........

I'd like a workshop. At this point, I am limited to sculptures that will fit between the edge of the table and my computer keyboard (6"x13" space). :) I'd use the dining table, but people in this house tend to think they need to eat! Sheesh! :p

I am afraid I am a little late for this one but what the hey....I think I have to go with Sandra on the kiln. I got everything else before Christmas! The studio, the clays, tools, pewter melting pot, etc. etc. digital cam .....Okay, so I am spoiled :D

Happy Holidays to all!

I got a couple of new tools that is always fun to get. I'll post more later on them.

Did everyone get cool art stuff for Christmas?

No tools, but some great computer games and clothes.

If I were now moving I would more than likely have received some tools, o well.
