Happiness is a Tool in My Hand Posted on 29 October 2012 by Alex Moseley As I helped my kids carve their jack-o-lanterns this evening, I noticed my mood elevating significantly. There’s no substitute for standing there with a tool in my hand, making something. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related

There is also no substitute for sharing your knowledge and experience to someone eager to learn it, and having fun in the process.
Thanks Chris! You’re absolutely right. Teaching my son the craft of woodworking has been doubly rewarding the past few years; not only do I get to spend quality time with him, but I also get the joy of teaching a willing and motivated student, using all of my coaching skills to help that student improve.
Hello all. I was cleaning out my parents old farm house and came across a box that has Plow and Daddoes in it. I don’t know its worth or too much about it. Do you know of anyone that is might be able to put a value on this for me. I believe these were used by my grandfather many years ago. The box says Fales Patent Planes with several sizes listed. I also have another box of forms and cutters. They appear in great condition although I am not familiar with them. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you,
Sam, I’ve not seen one of these in person, but they have a reputation for being overly complicated. Because of that, I would consider it more of a collector’s piece than a user’s. Patrick Leach summarizes it here, and Larry Meeker shows an example here. You might give Larry a try. Best of luck to you!
