I am getting excited to start things up. Step one is opening all the doors and drawers. I gave myself a self guided tour of the metals studio before classes start up. I am excited to get some time on some of this equipment. I spent some time taking a visual inventory of all of the stakes and hammers. It is quiet impressive. It seems as if all the equipment is the best of the best. The lapidary, electroforming, enameling, casting and smithing rooms are making me drool.
