    Default For those interested in DIY and tools

    You might want to checkout Do-it-101.com. They have republished "Carpentry for Boys" (cir 1914) on line. It's fun and interesting.

    Jack,

    Do you still have your originals from 1914? I mean, when you got your start and all.

    When I got my start we used flint and stones. A power tool was when you got your wife to do the work.
