Topic tags/keywords: humor plane question

Imagine that the first magical Grandchild is going to appear shortly. What would you add to a toolbox that you are going to build and cost wasn’t an issue (don’t I wish).

My choices are simple:
1) Stanley #1 or be realistic and go with Lie-Nielson #1 reproduction.
1b) or Stanley #2 / Lie-Nielson #2 reproduction
2) Bad Axe American Kids Saw in the smallest size.
3) Starett rulers and squares.
4) Down sized chisels.

I’m curious as to what you would add.

Got back in time, and look up a GOOD Handy Andy tool kit…...the ones that came with a wooden case.

Lee Valley sells miniatures of many of their hand tools. Although tiny they are actually functional.
