She is one of my biggest encouragers, whether it’s woodworking or life in general. Would you like to know how special my wife is? Well, today is our 21st anniversary.
What does she do? She lets me get out early to go tool picking at an estate sale.
First up: A pair of handles for a two-man crosscut saw. I don’t really need these, but they were too good to pass up. I will be listing these on ebay within a few days. If anyone has need of them, send me a message and we can work out a trade.
A 24tpi back saw and Stanley speedsquare.
A couple vintage bullnose planes. The larger one is a Craftsman version of a Stanley #78. The smaller plane is a Stanley #75. These will look great cleaned up and in my collection. They will be rehabed and ready for use hopefully in the very near future.
Finally: A super nice two-way ratcheting brace, with bits. Most of the bits are sharp. A couple need a little touch up work. Looking forward to putting this to work on a couple projects real soon.
So, after an early morning of tool picking, I still had to go to my regular job that pays the bills and makes hobbies like this one possible. After a day’s work, take by blushing bride out for a nice quiet dinner (without our teenagers). So after 21 years, what do I have to say about my beautiful bride?
YUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPP!!! She’s a keeper!!!
She’s the best pick I could ever have.
The love of my life and me.

Thanks for looking and letting me share.
