I moved my home workshop to a new room on Friday and spent the weekend sawing, painting, and drilling to get it finished. Instead of using my noisy power saw to cut the wood I needed, I chose my new handsaw. It was awesome feeling the wood cut right under your hands. The dead battery on my drill forced me to once again forgo the power tools and use my screwdrivers and wrench...it definitely got the arm muscles going!
My weekend of power-free tool use gave me a greater appreciation for the workers who built our country using nothing but brute strength and ingenuity. That's why today's treasury, Blue Collar, is a selection of my favorite vintage industrial finds. To view the full treasury, head over to Etsy.
