I've got a favor to ask all you artsy folks, especially those of you that sculpt with soft materials.
I am making a large set of tools and would love to know what you think would make the ultimate kit.
How many items do you truly use? (12, 24, 36, 48,?)
What type of wood should they be made of? ( hardwoods, softwoods, bamboo)
What metals would you use? (aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, tempered steel, tool steel)
Any cutting wires? (what gauges, piano wire, stainless, galvanized)
What kinds of polymers? (Teflon, abs, acrylic)
How would like them organized or packaged? (roll-up pouch, box, case they can clip into, pencil holder)
Anything else you can think of? (skies the limit)
Just as important is what should be avoided?
While listening to a couple of friends complain about there is nothing of quality made anymore I told them to make what they wanted. They replied why don't I do it and sell them.
They are right. So step one is product research and design. This is why I ask for input from the folks that use the tools. Who better to ask?
Thanks a bunch for your constructive input,
