Karen, Thank you for the private tour that you and Tim were so kind
to give to me and my daughter. The tool supply store is a great
addition to the city of Littleton and the metro Denver metal
community.

But, it is your shop that truly impressed me. I have been thinking
how I could have used your facilities while I was getting started. I
never liked having a shop at home. Even when I was relaxing, the
bench and the projects were right in front of me, I felt that I was
always at work. Polishing or casting in my unheated garage grew old
fast and my wife never got used to me boiling pickle or sodium
hydroxide on the kitchen stove. Child proofing a shop was always a
concern. I probably shouldn’t admit this but once I forgot to turn
off my flex shaft and my toddler crawled under my bench and decided
to press that cool looking pedal. It’s amazing how quickly a bur
can get snarled in hair and the cut on her scalp was ugly.

A fully equipped shop that is clean and comfortable, one that offers
the camaraderie that comes with working around other crafts people,
that would have been ideal. Your decision to equip the shop with a
wide selection of professional quality tools will make a huge
difference to any craftsperson who has only been able to use what
the local community college can provide. And anyone in the trade
will feel right at home. I have no doubt that you will fill all of
your spaces soon.

Good luck and welcome to the neighborhood.

Place usual disclaimer here. No affiliation and all. Just hoping to
get a plug in for two Orchidians who quit their day jobs to follow
their jewelry dreams.
