I started this blog expecting to spend at least a couple of years photographing and researching the tools in the Tison Tool Barn. Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, I am stopping my work with the Tison Tool Barn for an indefinite period. I hope that I will be able to eventually resume that work, but I do not know when. I just hope that you have enjoyed reading this blog half as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
I have been a volunteer at the Matheson History Museum. Feeling an affinity with old hand tools (some of which I remember from my youth), I have tried to learn more about the history of the tools in the Tison Tool Barn, and how they were used.
