I have but to look into a tool basket to know the quality of a carpenter.

For those of you who follow my blog, you have probably noticed posts about tools that I am selling on eBay.
Yes, I am selling off most of my tool collection, which I am selling only through eBay.
Why am I selling the collection?
There was a time when I thought collecting vintage tools was a cool thing. Now I have too many old tools that sit lonely in a nearly forgotten tool chest, those tools need to be used, they need to be on another woodworker's bench.
I have all the tools I need to create classical and flamenco guitars, and others to help me build cabinets, tool trays and other things for the shop.
It is time to let things go.
I am paring down to the essential tools that are needed to complete the task efficiently.
So, stay tuned for updates on the vintage tools that I am selling only on eBay.
These will be nice tools, I always bought good tools that needed very little tuning to I use in the shop.
