I’m just being nosy, but do you have a tool drawer in your kitchen?
For as long as I can remember every house in which I’ve lived had a tool drawer in the kitchen. For some reason it was always the left-hand drawer farthest from the sink and food-preparation area.
I have a fully-stocked workshop with pretty much every handtool ever made, but I still keep a selection of tools in the kitchen because -- well, I’ve always done that. Besides, if something breaks in the house I don’t want to have to go searching through several toolboxes to find the tool I need. Here is my current tool drawer.
Briefly, you can see that I have a tack hammer, small claw hammer, scissors, box cutter, pliers (both regular and needle-nose), vice grips, channel-locks, wire cutters, screwdrivers (Phillips and straight), spare batteries, a case with various screws and brads, and my general purpose box.
That general purpose box, in the front, has matches, tie-wraps, and leftover packets of hot sauce and crushed red pepper from fast-food orders.
Oh, the nylon filament is just temporary. I’m still decorating and use that to hang things from the wall or ceiling. Once I’m done, that’ll go back to the workshop.
So, the question is, am I the only weird person, or do you also have a tool drawer in your kitchen?
