As I looked back over yesterday's post, I was struck by how "well loved" some of my tools look. This reminded me of a funny story.I have a tv in my studio and it's often on while I'm working. One day it was tuned to a talk show about hoarders. James wandered in and watched a segment that featured a garage filled with brand-new, unused tools. When it was over, he looked at my stash of grubby knives and pliers and said, "I don't think you have that problem."
I can not tell a lie. I do have a few things that are still in packages...
and some of my occasional use tools look nearly brand new.
For the most part, however, James is right.
I use my tools!(And let's not even talk about other model horse hobby related hoarding issues, ok? The kid says I'm not a hoarder and I'm happy to leave it at that!)
