    Custom auger bit tool roll

    I picked up this Millers Falls auger bit set a while back.

    Since this is a complete set, including the expansion bit with both extensions, and since most of the bits appear to be unused (two are still wrapped in the oiled paper), I decided to keep the set as is to keep it's collectable value. But, I really did like the tool roll so I asked LOML if she could make one for me. Here is her prototype, nice huh?

    After I got it loaded up I realized that it would be nice to have a pocket for an auger bit file and a screwdriver for the expansion bit. LOML just got started on a second roll.
    She did all of the cutting and sewing as well as the embroidery. The material is like canvas with a double layer for the main roll. The flap is single layer.
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Looks like your wife has one of those fancy computer controlled embroidery sewing machines �� I like the logo. That roll looks really good. Your wife did a great job.

    She actually has a couple of Brother embroidery machines, among others. She makes a lot of pretty cool stuff.

    I think it's awesome.
    Nothing beats a try but a failure, failure is an opportunity to learn.
