Papaw is my Grandpa, but he is no longer on this earth. However he has left behind a part of himself in our hearts and some artifacts that I will still be able to use and enjoy!

Thank you Papaw for the memories!

Come join me on a treasure hunt into the deep recesses of Papaw’s toolbox! There are some unexpected discoveries that will thrill the mind and soul.

I hope that you enjoy.

I still have and use some of my grandfather’s tools that he taught me to use when I was very young. I think about him every time I use them.

I had a similar experience with a toolbox from my wife’s grandfather. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful treasure to find. I see he knew the correct way to store a hand saw with the cover on and the teeth up.

You will always treasure them, nothing you buy can replace what you have there. If I ever get my shop set up I will display my old tools.
