Will’s Tool Box

When we closed up Mama’s house I decided to buy the small hand tools. The three weeks we worked in the house I kept finding tools and put them in a small wooden tool box. (There was a big low heavy metal box that I had painted black. Then I painted flowers and “Mama’s Tool Box” on it in the 60’s. Mrs. Rita bought the metal one.) I thought the wood one would be a great Christmas gift for my grandson, Will. I gathered all up the small tools and the box. I took them home, and I wood burned his name on it. “Gatling” on one side and “Will” on the other. I did some decorative circles on the side. I hope he enjoys his tools from his great-grandparents. I, also, found four of Daddy tools that had his name engraved on them. I wrapped them up for my son, Blake, to have some of his grandfather’s tools. Merry Christmas, boys!
