Having all the tools in one place reduces time wastage. Let the tape measure speak for itself.
A Carpenter's Gift : Robert E Batey :
Since most work involves wood, why not go for a wooden tool? These things are ridiculously handy. Do not overlook this item. Yes, they may have one, or several, already, but they wear out or get misplaced. Get them one with a rubber handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Provide them with a bag that has a large interior to carry all the saws, screwdrivers, and hammers. The thumb, palm, and fingertips need extra protection. In addition, a glove will add comfort and the open finger design will allow better dexterity.
The Carpenter's Gift: A Christmas Tale about the Rockefeller Center Tree
In artisanship, accuracy is key. Combine function and beauty with this mahogany carpenter level. More than ever, a carpenter will need a utility knife that is durable. Luckily, new utility knives are much more ergonomic and handily store extra blades right in the handle. Any carpenter will spend plenty of time measuring and marking the wood to identify places that need cutting. Get a super-accurate readout by opting for digital calipers. Sanding in an old-fashioned way can be time-consuming.
Therefore, instead of using sandpaper, get them a sander to ensure they get smoother finishes. A table saw suffices for most projects. Henry decides to donate the tree and passes on the spirit of giving. Supplemental information about Rockefeller Center and Habitat for Humanity are included at the end. Although the book is not a true story for the setting , in the wood from the Rockefeller Center tree was donated to Habitat for Humanity and has been ever since.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. — Margaret Mead

I can't wait to read it to my two boys next month. We live in New York and it could easily be motivation to take them to Rockerfeller Center to ice skate by the tree that is mentioned in the story. We talk about paying it forward all year long as well, so to have the book do that on a much bigger level like Habitat for Humanity is very rewarding. Thank you for the beautiful story!

Beautifully told, this tale depicts the spirit of Christmas, the generosity of those living through the Great Depression and how they seek to pass on that sense of community and continuity to those who struggle in the next generation. The story touches on how people struggled to earn any money during the depression, the construction projects such as Rockefeller Center that were undertaken during the Great Depression, the importance of a community pulling together and pooling resources to help on Beautifully told, this tale depicts the spirit of Christmas, the generosity of those living through the Great Depression and how they seek to pass on that sense of community and continuity to those who struggle in the next generation.
The story touches on how people struggled to earn any money during the depression, the construction projects such as Rockefeller Center that were undertaken during the Great Depression, the importance of a community pulling together and pooling resources to help one another and the magic of a Christmas tradition - the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and how in this story the magic of this symbol embodies the spirit of generosity in this nation and how it is passed from one struggling generation to the next.
I enjoyed reading the ebook version to a group of special needs adults. They were fascinated with the story. Dec 17, Heather rated it it was ok. I was shocked the book started off with the boy as an old man. I like how there's golden light on the page with the man, and blue light on the page with him as a boy. Very pretty. I didn't know it was set during the Great Depression. Pretty mature for a kid not to complain that they didn't have warm planets or coal for the stove, 'because it was nobody's fault.
He looks cute sitting in the truck. He looks I was shocked the book started off with the boy as an old man. He looks cute as he's selling a Christmas tree and taking that woman's money. That's nice they decided to give the worker the leftover trees they had. I was surprised to see the cover was a page in the book. His dad's eyes while he has his hand on his shoulder looks like cats eyes! Light brown. Def don't look human!
I love the color of that blue curtain. Henry looks cute when Frank gave him the hammer.
I wish we could have seen them move in and put their furniture in. Right after it was built it fast forwarded to the spring. I like the aerial view of the house, with the green grass and pink trees. I can't believe a tree grew from a pine comb! For me the story got depressing when he got older.

He got married, moved away, and had a family. Most summers, though, he returned to visit his parents. On lazy days, he sat beneath the tree with his son, teaching him how to build things with the old claw hammer. One day, he was a young boy, waking up with a shiver. The next, he was an old man, living alone. Not needing a big place anymore, he decided to move back into the house where he had grown up. Especially how he ends up living alone! Wow I can't believe the guy from Rockefeller Center was flying overhead saw the tree and knew he had to have it.
It's someone's tree on their property! On the page with Henry on the ladder, the tree is so big it blots out the sky! It's weird it never mentioned his parents died. It mentioned him getting married and moving off. Then he just moves back home. It's unrealistic that both stories are so similar. The girl finds the pine comb. The girl doesn't look like a girl in the face. Then to further along the unrealistic-ness of it, he gives the girl his hammer. Not trying to be sexist, because she could grow up to be a carpenter, but a girl might not ever use the hammer.
The tree is really pretty, with the golden statue below it. The only thing is, the tree should look green with a bunch of lights. But this tree looks gold.
