Well, I have worked on these, but didn't build from scratch. :)

Did not make but heavily modfied I see, nice.  That little stamped monkey wrench fooled me til Pawpaw spoke up.   Embellishing the everyday items, something that has gone out of style in the past 100 years.  Sort of reminds me of a fellow that found an old wood framed bucksaw.   When he cleaned it up, discovered it was inlaid with cherrywood.  Hours of inlay, tedious work.  Just an ordinary saw, but when it was done, it was a cherished tool, used everyday, so why not?   Scott I enjoy your sharing this.  Thanks.
