Kari in Austin has a very creative son, Sam. He’s a “maker in the making,” you could say. CRAFT contributing writer Rachel Hobson put me in touch with Kari for my weekly Ask MAKE column because she was looking for the perfect gifts to stock her son’s birthday toolbox. Well, look how happy Sam is, and look at his awesome loot! Over on Flickr, she has a nice breakdown of what goes in the toolbox. Thanks to everybody that gave great suggestions for Sam’s first toolbox!
