You ever notice the relationships people can have with their tools? You love you're phone, right? Most all of us are texting and Facebooking junkies and our art is meted out with the phone. Saws, drills, welding equipment, glass ovens - to the materials artists, those are their iPhones. Talk shop with one of them and they'll brag proudly about their tools like honor roll off spring.
Sure, these people can create good looking things, but being well built also means they last. Doorways, railings, beams, hardware, fixtures, edges, moldings, counters, drawers . . . where does all that come from? If you want a specific look, or something matched, someone has to work the tools and make it. TULA works with people who love breaking them out.
