Collectors Corner: Yard-Sale Hand-Tool Finds (Woodworking/Carpentry)

Fun from Michele Alice & eCommerce Bytes

You don’t have to be a professional carpenter to admire the form and functionality of old woodworking tools. After all, who’s attention at a yard sale hasn’t been captured by the numbered segments of a folding ruler, or by a maker’s ornate medallion set in the wood handle of a fine-toothed hand saw?

Woodworking and carpentry – there’s a great deal of overlap, but they’re not exactly the same (think building a table and building a house) – developed in tandem, sharing the same tools. Over the course of human history, those tools have evolved and been adapted to fulfill both general and specialized functions
