Hello everyone. I would like to ask this simple question. What is the most valuable tool that you have?

Do you mean the most expensive or the one that is most used and does the best job?

I am certainly not the most sought after but just the Best, Haha. I would think it is my Square, make your tools Square and your project will come out square.

Yes I agree but what is the tool that you have that makes you the best at what you do.

I am not a scroller, turner, or carver so all tools are important to me. Great question though, sorry not a good answer from me.

Oh but yes you are close to answering the question that I have posted. I will give you another hint. It has nothing to do with actual tools or even equipment.

Disregarding all your criteria for a moment. My go to tool these days is a ratty old guitar that lives in the shed.

This does give you inspiration does it not? So this ratty old guitar is a valuable tool. Even if it has nothing to do with wood working

I cannot agree with you more my friend. The most satisfying thing that I have ever experienced was something that I made from scratch that no other hand has ever touched other than God himself.

So I guess this is more about my answer being correct with your opinion, therefore I have no idea what your thoughts may be.
I could answer what tool is more valuable to me that helps me make the most money, but apparently that’s not what your looking for.
I’m stumped.
