Toolbee’s story

I’m just a guy who likes to make and fix stuff.

Here is a real photo of me fixing a London bus with my pliers.

Okay maybe it’s Photoshop.

I used to have hair, but I lost it in a tragic hair trimming accident (pictured).

I have a Youtube channel about filmmaking and other stuff I like.

I use annoying thumbnails like this

I’m also a photographer.

I don’t really enjoy the long hours but at least the pay is terrible.

I’ve been a little bit obsessed with tools for the past 20 years.

Some days I looked like a Blue-Cords-R-Us employee.

Then a few years ago I hand-sewed some pouches for myself.

They kept my tools safe next to my… ermm… lets call it my “cavity exploration thermometer”.

Then I started learning to use an old sewing machine.

Very slowly. Like a baby monkey.

The earlier ones were pretty crappy due to lack of skill.

So of course I had to purchase a better machine to “fix the problem”.

It’s big and grey so I feel manly while I sew pouches and sip my tea.

Then I tried to draw a logo. My first attempts would have been great for a kid’s TV show.

And the pouches were looking less like a child’s crafts project.

And after only billions and billions and billions of hours of work I finally had a nice looking logo.

And now after 3 years of hard work, I think these are the best pouches you can get.

So here we are. Toolbee has launched. I still don’t really know how to sew but I have a big sewing machine and that’s what matters.
