Jewel of a Tool Winners Announced!
For our most recent gallery challenge, Fine Homebuilding’s editorial staff was on the hunt for tools with a story behind them. We were after toolbox gems with time-worn handles, warm patinas, and personal histories as rich as the luster on a well-aged piece of cherry. While we were able to find plenty of folks with wonderful old tools, in our winners we discovered tool that were well-worn, well-loved, and well-used. In fact, all three of our winners continue to use their jewels to this very day.
And the Winners Are . . .
