Garden Studio: July Studio Tour 2014

inside the studio for July 2014
Well made tools make all the difference on the bench which creates less fatigue for the artisan and assists in quality craftsmanship when it comes to the work. Why fill your studio with tools that you aren't physically comfortable using or that need replaced in a short span of time.  One statement my Father made to me, at an early age, was not to scrimp on tools or quality when it comes to food.

left corner metal forming tools, etc.

super little multi-functional German made Proxxon vise and the Crafted Findings Riveting System
choosing stones for new pendants on the workbench where the flexshaft tool systems and Wolf Belt sander live

I have not invested in the Foredom top shelf system but, have the Grobet and Prodigy .  The one is dedicated to the Wolf belt sander while the other is hanging from the ceiling by a small bungy cord allowing me to use it while wheeling around  from bench to bench in the small studio :)
part of the Pepe jumpring maker for winding wire

little sander is a super time saver when prepping ear-wire ends, deburring blanks and polishing 
This super useful 6 inch square bench block is from Romazone located on Etsy and is for sure a great addition to the bench.  I cannot seem to metal-stamp or hammer texture with out it.  The small 3 inch blocks are very nice but, I find the larger working space indispensable. 
a few tools on the cabinet door older saw, kitchen knife sharpener and ring sizer
some wire
Alexandra font stamps and some smaller Arial fonts stamps
view from the vise/sawing station on the right of studio
catching up on another Joy the Baker podcast with Joy the Baker and Tracy Benjamin 
The stations are all fused together, stamps on the sawing area, just crazy, lol
Tools are with us in what ever trips your trigger including cooking, hiking, photography or camping.
