Behold the mighty hammer! So simple in its design—a head and a handle—but capable of both building up and tearing down. Is it any wonder that March 11 has been designated as National Worship of Tools Day?
While we don’t know who created this special recognition, we do think the honor is well-deserved. From the dawn of time, people have fashioned tools to help them build everything from heartfelt gifts to entire civilizations.
How to celebrate Worship of Tools Day
- Clean your tools. The better you take care of them, the better they’ll work and the longer they’ll last. Ideally, you should clean your tools after every use, but if you’ve been neglectful, now’s the time to make it right.
- Repair damaged items. Like anything else, tools can break, but often, a simple repair or replacement part can keep them working for years. Sharpen dull blades, and be sure to check out batteries and chargers, too, to make sure everything is ready to go when you are.
- Treat yourself to a new tool. Is there something you find yourself frequently borrowing or renting? Maybe it’s time to get your own. Have a much-used tool that’s no longer safe to use? A replacement may be in order. Stop by our store or shop our website from the comfort of your home.
- Reorganize your tool bench or box. Being able to find the tool you need when you need it is key. Spend some time getting things in shipshape.
- Cook a meal with power and steel (we see you Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor)!
Everyone uses tools
The definition of tools extends far beyond the work bench—basically, anything that helps you get the job done is a tool, from a pencil to a coffeemaker! Worship of Tools Day is a great excuse to pause for a moment and appreciate just how much they help us accomplish.
