Bill Tucker of Coulterville, California,
has used a variety of items to make the pictured miniature tools: The scraps
out of horseshoe nail boxes, ice nails for the tongs, fingernail files for
the rasps, rivet ends for the hammers, belt leather for the shoeing box,
and some scrap walnut for the box that holds the tools.
Bill found the time to create these miniature masterpieces while recovering
from injuries sustained in the line of duty as a farrier and blacksmith.
