Know Your Tools

Check out this interesting blog that I stumbled across (well, not so much "stumbled" as "clicked the link when he signed up as a follower"): Sir Richard's Took Kit: A Blog About Hand Tools. It's exactly what the title says it is, giving explanations, descriptions, and instructions for various hand tools as well as extra interesting bits. Learn all about various clamps, vises, saws, knives, brayers, engravers - and the mighty clothespin! Seems like a very handy reference site for miniaturists.

Also, I am totally envious of his miniature book press, as this is what mine looks like:

I like that book, 'Dictionary of Imaginary Places'.

What an ace site!

I can never resist perfect miniature tools, even if I don't always use them for the purpose for which they're intended.

About Me

My Photo
Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
