The next day we ran to Menards and bought this work bench plus a 6' table top for it. I think the table top is MDF or something.
Then I hit some online shops. I ordered my torch (Carlisle Mini CC), hose, didymium glasses, and a work surface from Sundance Glass (the pliers were a free gift for spending lots o bucks).
I decided I am going to set up my ventilation similar to how Andrea Guarino-Slemmons has hers. Her awesome husband Whit even put directions on how to do it on her website. I've ordered the fan and the silencer online, but should be able to get the rest locally.
I've also ordered duplicates of a few of my very favorite basic tools. These are the tools I use on most of my beads. They haven't gotten here yet, but this is what they look like:
Hopefully by the time I write my next post, I will have set everything up and lit the torch for the first time.
Have an amazing week!
