Default xmas came early

i just had a visit from a man I used to know a few years ago. He wanted to clear out some of his tools as he is old and unwell.
So I bought back this lot...



The wood is teak stair treads from 40 years ago, and the long piece is 6ft, to give you an idea of the size.

Then I emptied both of them onto my bench. Everything on the bench came with the deal, except the vice in the very front of the picture. Included in the deal is a Hegner variable speed scroll saw.



heres the same lot from the other end.



My wife asked me what I was going to do today, I replied "I'm just going to the garage dear, I may be some time......"

I've had a first troll through.
This is the "not scrap" list

Nice haul Bob. Should keep you busy for a while.

Don't have much spare space but I'll make some if it would help.

Now you need to put them to use building storage cabinets. A great win win.

Very nice Bob. Are those profile blades sitting in front of the bolt cutter? I don't see a profile plane in the bunch but the 3 Stanley's look to be in very good shape.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
