Default Tools to take with you

Ok, here's a tough one - maybe.
You are going to be making a lot or furniture/cabinets , all hard and soft wood; no sheet goods. Some will be large items -bookcase, cabinets, maybe a chair, smaller workinh woulkd be jewelry size boxes. No power tools.
You can take with you 1 set of chisels, 1 block plane, 1 jack plane, 1 smoother and 1 jointer, 2 handsaws.
Ok, which brands would you take?

Me, well I'd take some courses first, but would take my Barr chisels, LN block and jack, my GNT Gordon wooden smoother and I ain't got no joiner!
Can't decide betwen my Adria saws of my Japanese saws. All a pleasure to use.
Next woodworker?



Bob

I'd just borrow some stuff from Fred. He has enough that he wouldn't miss them much. Doesn't matter which brand, all of his stuff is top notch.

I'll borrow Fred's stuff too - even with Michael and me both running off with stuff, he still wouldn't notice the difference! He has more chisels than ... well ... Okay, how 'bout this: he has a room full of chisels. FULL of CHISELS! I'm not kidding.

Why have Veritas bevel-ups when you can have Marcou bevel-ups? I guess Philip still doesn't make a jointer, does he?

I completely agree! Especially that sweet Tiger Maple Jack he picked up recently!

Fred does, and that's probably the stuff he'd be most comfortable with me borrowing since it is also the easiest to replace.
