Check out my kick rear end bit brace! I donno how old it is, I assume pretty old. I found it in a pawn shop for $5. I never use a power drill when this will do that job. It just so fun, I don't know why we invented power drills (I do know, its because the bit brace is hard work )

This guy is the ultimate in off-grid wood working, Dick Proenneke. The man backpacked into the Alaskan wilderness with nothing but hand tools and a rifle and built himself a log cabin from scratch.

Here he is carving the handles for all of his hand tools (why carry heavy handles? )
