My father started teaching me how to use hand tools at the age of three or four.  This was one of my favorites.

Family Treasures No. 10 – Twin Handled Hand Drill

I love the wood handles and the gear, painted red.  It still works beautifully, turning smoothly.  The sound it makes brings a flood of wonderful memories.

I played The Color Scheme Game in reverse, wanting to be true to the colors of the Twin Handled Hand Drill.  The Dominant Color is Yellow / Orange.  I chose to use a triad color scheme by making the background blue.  (Yellow/Orange, Cool Red, Blue)
