I can imagine Mads salivating as we speak. Good post, Larry. I wonder if I could do the rabbits thing with boxes. Probably if I started with one a mile wide,lol.

A lot of those old tools looked like they were for dressing logs and cutting then to boards and /or building heavy timber buildings. It’s a great piece of woodworking culture from the past and it also gives us an appreciation for the machines which do the heavy work for us today.

It was always said that the rabbits could multiply. Now they are doing is in wood!!

That is a real neat collection of old tools. I’ll bet that all still do the job, too!
