"It is told that the now famous Brian Boggs used a sharpened screw driver to cut chair mortises when he was a poor lad starting out, for that was the best tool he had on hand for the task."

I wonder if he was trying to find something like the tool illustrated in the Alexander book that showed a very long chisel one could push with one's shoulder. Didn't seem to still be around when the tape was made.
