      Hi Carl - coffee works well for me. Can't start the day in the shop without a big mug to set me up and the grounds have got me out of a fix a couple of times when I've needed to touch up a knock on a stained item. For tools though I'd be lost without a decent universal or combination square - the sort generally used by engineers which include a level and scribing pin as part of the deal. At the last count I have three in the shop so I can always lay my hands on at least one when the other two go missing after I've absentmindedly put them down somewhere - which I often do!

      Just had a rethink and one item which I've used a lot in the past and need to use a heck of a lot now as the years clock up is a good small magnifying lens! Without this I have no idea which way the finer reverse tooth blades are pointing!!!!

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
