I remember growing up as my childhood home was being built. I loved watching the carpenters walk around constructing the walls and the cabinetry.
They were like superheroes with all the tools and gadgets on their belts. The carpenter’s belt is a rugged piece of leather craftsmanship. Without it, I’d imagine the carpenter’s job would be a slow and cumbersome chore.
The belt allows the carpenter to have the most frequently used tools at hand and ready to use.
