Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Cordless Planer

To enter last week’s Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify a round wooden thing that looked like a tricked-out paper towel holder. We had an interesting variety of answers, everything from a pasta dryer, to a foot massager, to a yarn roller, to a guinea pig exercise wheel. Well, all those answers are wrong.  Last week’s mystery tool was an antique fishing-line dryer.

We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is Librarypat who also thought it was a yarn winder.  Congrats Librarypat, even though you guessed incorrectly, you still win. You have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Craftsman 19-Volt Cordless Planer. A necessity for every woodworker, this powerful tool can cut a variety of wood. The adjustable depth and the grooved front shoe makes it easy to create perfect 45-degree chamfered and beveled edges.  

Reality check: Christmas is less than three weeks away! Save money – learn how to make tasty DIY gifts even if you’re not a master in the kitchen. Put together a basket of exotic teas, bags of flavored popcorn, a tray of gourmet cheeses or a collection of sugar and spices for the cook on your gift list.  Plus, find a ton of decorating and craft ideas.

To win the Craftsman 19-Volt Cordless Planer, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this old-timey gadget is (pictured below). You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, December 11, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until December 11, 2012 at 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Cordless Planer.
