Sorry, I don’t feel like talking about it again.

So sorry to hear of your loss—hope you can put it behind you at some point.

Your sig. line reminds me of a comic from years ago, who used to say: “As a child, I was quite young.”

Bill, that’s so sad! That toolbox was the rival of anything I’ve ever seen. My best wishes for rebuilding.

Sure was a nice box though, wasn’t it? Thanks everyone. Ill admit it, I cried, I got pissed, I got mad but in the end I got to live. Could have been worse. Could have lost more. Thankfully the fire was contained fairly quickly, just not quickly enough. The real shitter of it is if I had left it right there where I took those pictures, Id still have it. This is by far not the biggest loss. Those tools were held by the hands of people long gone, who meant a lot to me and taught me more than woodworking, those are the lost tools that are still wrenching my guts.

Even worse, the insurance company wont cover the contents of the little building it was in because it wasn t physically connected to my house.

That does not sound right, Bill. If I remember right, homeowners and renters insurance covers your stuff even if it’s not in your house. Your HO insurance covers theft of property out of your car for example. I would check into what your insurance co is telling you more. But if your policy really did say that, then that sucks and I’m sorry for your loss either way. Money can’t replace your things.

Yep, unfortunately, it really does/did say that but it was in this convoluted wording that was confusing to everyone except those who would have had to pay out the money. Needless to say that we have vigorously been shopping for a new policy.

Sorry fellers but I think I changed my mind and don’t want to think about that crap again. I did want to show yall some pictures of what was really the only thing I had built lately but its making me want to drink, and I don’t drink.
I just need to get some new tools and make some new stuff to make me feel better.
I tried to figure out how to just delete the damn thread but I didn’t see where one does that.

A fire, lost tools with sentimental value, lost projects. Sounds terrible. And then to get crapped on by the insurance company. Thank you for sharing that part. My shop isn’t connected to my house so I better check my policy. Sorry for your loss.
