1. I have archived much of my life through collected objects.
2. I have moved a smaller studio, making it necessary that I get rid of a lot of these objects.
3. I have done so by using them as the raw material for one enormous collage, created inside a 30-yard dumpster.
4. Oh, also, I have photographed around 500 of these objects and will display them here, accompanied by a brief history of each item.

When people who don't know what they are talking about say 'Can't you just sand it', what they mean is, 'This job calls for that tool, that thing that has been around since like the Second Punic War'.

  1. Ok Mac, for starters this is a plane, not a planer. A planer is a power tool with a motor and these days probably plugs into the wall. Specifically this is a jack plane. Other than that I think you are approximately on target. (1) people who don't make things are patronizing and boil the maker's life down to "hit with hammer, make less bad". (2) this object has remained the same in form and utility since sometime before christ in either Egypt or Rome.
