Uncle Bob's Tool Shop

Last week I visited my family in Colorado and had lunch with my aunt and uncle. The highlight of the afternoon was a tour of Uncle Bob's sparkling basement workshop. It's so clean you might think he built it just for show, but let me assure you he makes a lot of projects in his shop.

Stock is kept against the wall.

This air compressor caddy Bob built looks like it could have been a Roy Doty Wordless Workshop project!

At their age, Jane and Sarina are not yet refined enough to appreciate the magnificence of this workshop.

If these drawers don't have it, you don't need it!

An old friend of my grandfather's named Mister Busterneen built this wood bench for him in 1960 or so. Bob didn't change a thing other than adding the casters.

A clamp for every situation.
