I got paid £3.50 a week back then and the tools meant something to me because they cost me and I still use the same tools and I remember my dad once saying, “Sell anything you own except your tools because only fools sell their tools.”
And one day thieves came stole some of my tools and I was saddened greatly by the loss but all the more by this one thing; those who took my jewels knew nothing of what they’d cost me, or the joy they’d brought me and that they could never be replaced.
But those who know not what they do are still to be forgiven. I was glad they left the bulk of them. It made forgiveness easier. Where I grew up they would’ve cut their hands off for much less. Steal anything but never a working man’s tools.
Sam’s ready to load up now. Here are his dovetails. This is one of the very best toolboxes there is in my view. Those of you who are with woodworkingmasterclasses.com can access all of the techniques and methods by following a tool chest build we did nack in 2013.
