A few weeks ago I traveled back east for Memorial Day and to bring home some of my Dad’s things from his old shop. His cabinet bench is a real treasure to me and its nice to have it here in my shop now.

What are your prized treasures that have been handed down from that special person who started you on the woodworking path?

I read your blog … quite a touching story. I hope that these tools find a long and happy life in the newer generation(s).

I am glad I clicked the link to read the story. I am glad that you are honoring your father’s memory by using his bench and tools, and planning on teaching your own next generation of woodworkers. Very well written too. I like your line about how Arlington is laid out with the same military precision that these men laid to rest lived and served.
