Hey everybody, I just met a young father of three boys. His name is Frank. He is wanting to provide for his family and his boys, but is unable to afford to buy what they need. He has decided to build what they need, Bunk beds, tables and chairs to do school work at, etc…
Here is the rub, he has very few tools and even less money, I set him up with a tool box, a #3, #4, #5 plane and a couple block planes.. there was a half a dozen assorted chisels and a couple saws, a draw knife and a spoke shave. plus some other things I had around, squares and such..
If anyone out there has anything hand tool wise that they would like to donate to a great cause, I will have his name and address if your interested.
Keep in mind, that he and I both live in CT. So there will be some shipping costs involved. I just met Frank, and I find him to be honest and sincere in wanting to help out his family. I have offered to mentor him in his woodworking and will help him all that I can.,.
So hey.. iffin you feel generous, and you got stuff ya aint used in a coons age… here is a great place to see it put back into use..
Okay that enough of me hanging the guilt trip on ya… give it a thought, and let me know if you can help..
