You're probably here because you'd like to know what sort of thing I'd like for a gift! :)

I do also have an Amazon wish list which is up to date and contains a number of non-Amazon items (besides, I would encourage you to buy from wherever you like).

Also please note, I'm aware that a lot of the items on this page are very expensive and I don't really expect anyone to buy me them! This list is absolutely not prescriptive - if you're looking for a gift hopefully though it'll give you some idea as to what sort of things I'm currently interested in, though there are a few cheaper things as well.

Currently, I'm trying to get back into cycling - I have a shiny new road bike on order to arrive in early January, and Alex will skin me alive if I divert hobbies and spend a lot of money elsewhere, so that's my primary focus. With that said, I've got long-term plans to build myself a semi-hollow guitar - see below - and anything that encourages me to keep playing is good.

Andy's Wish List

Household stuff

  • Toys for Poppy will always be much appreciated - though they have to be immensely hard-wearing as any soft toys (even the "rugged" ones) she tends to destroy in under a minute.

Music stuff

  • A tab book for Queens of the Stone Age's Like Clockwork... if they ever bring one out.
  • Tabs for Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here - there's a tab book on the Amazon list that includes this

Tools / Workshop stuff

My Amazon wishlist has some odds and ends on it, and may be more up to date that the below, so please do check there :)

  • Tools
    • Spring clamps - something like these or these. You can never have too many clamps. ax803192)
    • A pair of parf super dogs - these go with my home-built workbench and aree really useful for making accurate cuts.
    • There are a couple of Japanese-style saws listed on the Amazon list
  • Projects
