« Part 1: One mans junk is another WOmans treasure Part 2 of Old tools series no next part

Well I am just back from driving 2 trailer loads to the tip.

As promised a report for you all.

Did I get any new tools you ask? Well no alas I already managed to get the cream of the crop. There were a few really rusted tools that were beyond even my ‘must save all tools’ mind set. One screw driver disintegrated upon lifting.

Alas the shed had a major leak over the tool storage area of the shed. I did manage to pick up some timber though so I am more than happy with my days work – nothing spectacular but a few nice pieces of – I don’t know what – that will make a nice box or two.

I thought I was a hoarder – this man was THE new definition of hoarder – the two trailer loads was FULL of pure junk and rubbish.

On another note I am spending the weekend in my shop making and finishing off Christmas presents.

If I don’t mention it before – Merry Christmas to everyone.

Well at least it wasn’t a completely wasted trip, you did get some lumber!

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Lumber is better than nothing which is what I have been getting recently.

Well it was worth the try. And you cane out of it with some wood.

Good luck with the presents.

Living on the desert wood is everything. Tools are much cherished but without the wood we are not woodworkers. May your holidays be bright and full of cheer!
