ok, so the toolbox is boring, he uses an aluminum briefcase.

probably have to give them your email

I thought this was really interesting.  I know there are low angle jack fans, but I have never been convinced.  However, the fact that it's lighter is a pretty good reason to carry one instead of something else.

I was hoping they would have a picture of the briefcase packed, but I guess he just wraps everything in bubble wrap.

Cool!

I think choice also includes intended instruction. Hack is noted for his scratch stocks. The space could be used by other tools also. I don't see extremely expensive tools, either. And, yes, a peek into the case would be fun.

Given all the tools on his list, I kinda doubt they all fit in that petite aluminum briefcase.  An interesting article, nevertheless.  It's sort of in the genre of Schwarz's anarchist approach - a couple of years later.

I don't know, I was thinking they all fit. Wonder if it's worth asking them for a pic.  

Garrett Hack has been traveling around giving classes for a very long time, I don't figure he learned much from Schwarz

The club I belong to brought Garrett in for a class a little while back and he does get all those tools in that case. It's really kind of disheartening to watch what he can do with those few tools.
Currently a smarta$$ but hoping to one day graduate to wisea$$

What tools (that you rely on) are missing from Garrett Hack's toolbox?

Went I have to go out & about to do a bit of work.....like building a loft bed at my daughter's place.....I toss what tools I think I'll need into a tote.....
   
That is a full size handsaw sitting in there.   I can carry all the tools for a job in this tote,  and still lift it with one hand.

Given he's primarily a furniture maker, it might be unfair to say:

Drawknife
Lathe tools (gouges)
Carving tools
Adze
Rasps
Saw sharpening (saw set, triangular files)
Drilling Tool and bits (most curiously missing - maybe he uses nails or just glue, but...)
Mallet or hammer? (especially most curiously missing, given he has chisels)
Screwdrivers?
Still Learning,

Well, if one wants to get picky I don't see a hammer or any type of drill either. Uhoh

A #79 and a #271 fit the concept and are very useful.
