Not to forget this “setter” up North. We made many telephone calls
and emails to each other. We were battling deadlines at every moment.
She ran this article like no else has ever done before. She is a
"real gift" to our international “Can-Am” trade. Glad to have you on

Tip of the hat to ya, Tina! Job very well done…“Gerry, the
Cyber-Setter!” (clap! clap!)

I had the pleasure of seeing Michael’s studio up close and personal.
It is exactly as the picture depicts in the AJM article. His studio
is orderly and equipment is placed to maximize work time.

What a Setup!!!

I had stopped by Michael Sturlin’s Studio in Scottsdale to deliver a
product he had ordered. After walking into his studio I spent hours
admiring the layout and collection of quality tools.

I seen some studios with a lot more tools (more expensive tools)
but not like his.

Buying tools is very easy. To have them arranged for their purpose
and to maintain a flow.

With the help of Proper Counter Space, Correct working Height,
Designated Benches, Chairs, Lights, Windows, Floor space, Vents.
Most of all the Discipline to keep it clean comes from within. He has
that gift.

Creativity & Imagination does not necessarily begin or follow with
Chaos & Clutter. I am waiting to see his new Studio when he moves.
