Saw bench

There are so many items made with care and accuracy in our world. This saw bench hasn’t been in use for many years. There it sits in an old barn, waiting for what destiny will bring. It looks like a painting, I love the colours. Hubby will bring the bench home, and hopefully use it also. He’s a carpenter, among many things.


Planes and saw benches aren’t made like that any more. Oh yes, they are just as good and often better, but there’s something very special with old tools that have been used and taken care of. I always feel sorrow when I see them abandoned like this, when the last owner has been in the grave for a long time. I think they have a soul. They wait, they hope.

    Oh Barbro, the stories they could tell! I love the patina on old things and I am so glad it is finding a home with your husband.

    Oh, yes, I totally agree with you that old tools and benches have stories to tell and seem at rest or lost when not being used. If only they could talk.
