One of may favorite memories was hanging out with my dad whe he was building things around the house. He had a homemade wooden tool box with all kinds of specialized fittings inside that held the tools just so. It was myy job to put every thing back in the proper place. When I was really little (4-5) I used to put all the curls from planing al over my head. Actually it wasn’t a very different hair do from the one I had naturally!
My dad had several of those. One for drills, one for screwdrivers, one for sockets, one for wrenches, one for knives .. the list could go on for a while. I remember having to clean the wood and metal shavings out of those with compressed air, and take the nozzle and make shrill whistles when placed between my fingers.
