Cabinet Makers Check Out Tools Here.
My cousin Richard is a skilled cabinetmaker. Actually he's a table maker, cupboard maker, counter maker -- Richard is an old-fashioned craftsman in the most patient, admirable sense.
Richard did all the design and work on a neighbor's kitchen. I've never seen such attention to detail, such use of wood. And then my nephew is studying to be a ship wright, and you just know he's going to build some awesome wooden boats.
Any wood-working pro, cousin,nephew, anyone; he trust his tools, and treats them w/care and respect. And when I saw these on display in the 3100 California Co-op I recognized many of the implements, and couldn't resist taking a photo.
Little out of sharp focus, and I apologize for that. Know now what I might have done differently. Live and learn. And learn and learn and learn. Just like the cabinet maker.
