Re: What hand tools can't you live without?

Michael, Nice cabinet, looks like a fun project and build. The tools (so far) certainly cover the basics. Good suggestions on what to add, however, as has been said, the additional tools would depend on the task at hand. However no matter - we always seem to need one more tool that we left at home. With the weight the handles will have to be strong and secure. To secure the drawers it would nice not to need (keep track of) keys.
If you need to take clamps you can throw them in the canvas tote which is now empty. Clamps aren't quite as finicky about their surroundings and edges as planes, chisels, saws, squares, etc.
