Location: Southern Tier, New York

I’m a native New Englander currently living in update NY. I come from a long line of carpenter's and aspire to be a hobby woodworker of some talent and imagination - in my spare time - if the gods are willing. :-)

I like old tool boxes, tool chests and hand tools. I'm looking to set up a small efficient shop to get started.

I have a small collection of vintage tools and am trying to slowly build a collection of tools made in my native New Hampshire.

Welcome Caractacus—

I hope we can be of genuine support and meaningful assistance in your self-launch into this amazing hobby, the Crater Lake of working with your hands.

Just one question: Caractacus the British warrior or Caractacus the Gyro Gearloose of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

Thanks for the warm welcome and info about posting. Regarding my name it’s a little of both: ancient British warrior and eccentric inventor. In real life I’m a librarian, but I’m trying to develop the eccentric inventor buried inside as time, treasure and talent allow.
