We have one left for next year that is about 16 feet now. This has actually worked out so well I wish I had been planting Douglas firs every year so we cold continue to get our own trees for Christmas.
The next thing I was excited about was to see the reaction from my oldest daughter when she saw the "Organic Steampunk" lamp I built for her. Three years ago she went traipsing through the brush to retrieve birch and alder tree sheds to make a clothes rack for her younger sister. One of them she expressed and interest in for a lamp "some day". I kept it in my shop. Later on she started liking steampunk decor, so I turned this Alder snag into a steampunk lamp, a melding of nature and industry.
Thankfully she loved it. Whew!
Now comes the awesome part. Both my girls came up with the same thoughtful gift idea for dear old dad. Nautical themed decanters with glasses. Fortunately they are enough different that they compliment rather than duplicate. I set them up in my hobby room along with the popcorn air popper I also received from one of the girls.
Well another year has almost passed. I was not a very prolific mini builder this year. Perhaps 2020 will be more productive. Cheers to all and again Merry Christmas!
Update December 26th: My wife gifted me a desk top lift for my hobby desk so I can stand up to work occasionally. I had to reorganize before I could make room to mount it. It works great!
