THIS IS NOT A CONTEST... I hope the title isn't misleading... let me know if you think it is.
This IS a way to get you thinking about what your most important tools are, which will in turn give you some insights into yourself as a woodworker.
Here's the hypothetical scenario:
1) You have no tools. Zilch. Zero. Not even a pocket knife.
2) You have $1000 tool budget for a YEAR.
How would you spend your $1000?

I look forward to hearing how you'd outfit your woodshop with only $1000...
