My Tools #4: The Tools I'm Most Proud Of

Feel free to add yours in the comments, or on your own blog (and post the link in the comments). 3. My Irwin chisels.

Why Norm's power tool cabinetry revolution is happening...

Well, I’ve been searching and looking high and low. Mainly for chisels and handplanes. I was looking for decent everyday tools, not collectibles. I didn’t want to spend a lot money since that would take away from the money I need for wood. I started my search on ebay, progressed to various forum site member ads, watched craiglist, checked auction sites, newspaper classifieds.

And so at the end of the day on Saturday, I walked through the back yard and was drawn to the beauty of these….what we call, ‘Indian Paint Brushes’.

Singing Mallets ....and so tis in this the moment of my arising, that the spewing forth of motley coloratura comes weaving heavens rhyme, where i am justified a vision quest of inseeing sensationalizing, that comes to me bearing up beyond my scope of cosmic time…. And so I thought that today I would post a couple of photos of some of the mallets that I have made.
