Surprises in the mail

A couple days ago I got some mail I wasn't expecting. A puffy envelope addressed to me from Dave Parmenter. I chuckled a bit and couldn't wait to see what was inside! Turns out Dave sent me a note and some basswood stringer shavings from his block planers. Most people could care less, probably most shapers as well. I was stoked like a grom and Dave knew somehow that I would appreciate that. To me, that's the kind of gesture of a shaper who really cares about your shapes. We spoke a lot about all the different boards I have coming and at great length. Instead of doing what normal shapers do (what they want) Dave did everything i wanted and translated that to foam. Couldn't be more humbled or stoked in the same sentence.......
