Anyone travel with wood tools?

4 posts in this topic

When we were fulltime I always had my scroll saw and an assortment of both power and hand wood tools. I made small projects for gifts, particularly for our grandsons. We also spent a lot of time as resident volunteers for wildlife refuges where I often spent time in the wood shop or building small buildings, observation decks, and similar projects.

To carve miniature decoys and song birds, I carry a few wood carving knives, replacement blades, chisels, a sharpening stone and a wood burning tool. They all fit in a very small plastic tool box. Although not just for wood carving, I also have a dremmel tool and a flexible shaft for an electric drill that can be used for some wood carving tasks. The primary use for the electric drill itself is to raise and lower the jack stands and tension the weight distribution bars on the trailer hitch.

Yep, when we full-timed I carried a scroll saw and table top band saw. Now that we part-time I only carry my wood-carving tools. A small box keeps them all in tip top shape. I cut out all my projects on the band saw before I leave home and them carve away. Also carry the Dremel.

I pack what I can get away with going thru the border.  US Customs does not like us coming thru with tools.  Basically my Veto Service bag, skillsaw, various prybars, drill and impact, 2 line laser, Multitool.  My 3 Stabilla levels, Kneepro kneepads, ear defenders, various gloves.

All that is needed to work on cleaning up messes on volunteer jobs.
