Mister Rogers has been thinking about tools and mentions that he used to borrow his father's tools and forget to put them back where they belong. With him he has brought materials for making a tool shelf similar to the one his father made for him as a child. In the backyard, Mister Rogers pieces the shelf together and sings Hammers, Pliers, and Screwdrivers.

Joe Negri stops by with a musical instrument made by a friend from random pieces from a junkyard. Mr. Negri plays a bit of A Handy Lady and a Handy Man on the instrument.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney cannot find his hammer and Handyman Negri offers to help him find it. At the tree, X the Owl has not seen the hammer but sings Hammers, Pliers, and Screwdrivers with Handyman Negri. Following a loud pounding sound, Handyman Negri finds that Lady Elaine Fairchilde is using Corney's hammer at the Museum-Go-Round. When Corney arrives, he is very displeased with Lady Elaine having taken the hammer without permission.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers returns the instrument to Negri's Music Shop where he finds Bob Trow and Johnny Costa performing music with Don Riggs using nothing but discarded and recycled items. They play Everybody's Fancy using old pipes and empty cans before Mr. Riggs plays Tree Tree Tree using a hand saw. Together as a group, everyone plays It's Such a Good Feeling before Mister Rogers returns to the house and concludes for the day.
