Traveling Metalsmith

As my champs work, I prepare to leave the country...I will be taking my favorite tools on the road, or plane, I should say. My friend, Dana Fehsenfeld, is going to make me a custom traveling tool kit similar to the one pictured above that she also made for the metals studio. I complied a list of tools and then packed as many as I could in this existing kit just to see how it will all work. I am pretty happy with this design and will have her do something like it with a few adjustments--more pockets, a zippered pouch on the outside for my sand paper, and grommets on either side toward the middle so it can hang.

 some examples of Dana's work...above and below

Thanks for reading.
