Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
For three hours on a Friday or Saturday morning, master dotter of visual is and crosser of aesthetic ts Judith Spychalski will instruct you and four to nine other students in the ways of Venetian-style lime plastering; she will also teach how to apply crackle finishes and the potential uses of glazing and paint. The 10-people-per-class limit ensures personalized tips and attention for each aspiring decorator. Ideal for hardened do-it-yourselfers, this class can help you start on the path to crafting your home to your individual taste, glamorizing walls, ceilings, woodwork, cabinets, and the dog. For examples of the type of garnishes you'll be taught in these lavish lessons, check out the academy's project gallery.
Head coach and founder Charles Randall is at the helm of a highly decorated staff of fencers that teaches the sport of saber fencing to legions of participants new and old. His team’s efforts have earned the facility a spot in the United States Fencing Association and bragging rights for two-time National Saber Champion and resident instructor Malia Hee. Potential saber-wavers can sign up for classes for all experience levels to develop agility, balance, discipline, and problem-solving. Whatever their sword-wielding powers, all fencers learn new skills in a specialized, air-conditioned facility complete with a floor that reduces stress on the ankles, knees, hips, and emotions.
The Dirty Works team blitzes big, small, and reoccurring projects with multi-sided expertise while helping homeowners cross off line after line on their "To-Do" lists. The business, promising to be timely and professional no matter what the job, updates interior spaces to be safer and more organized, whether its staffers are repairing drywall, removing junk, or simply handling general repairs. That same know-how extends outdoors, as well, when Dirty Works is called upon to pressure-wash exterior surfaces or scoop gunk out of gutters. After parties, they're available for major cleanups, and around the holidays, they string lights from roofs and sweep any stray white whiskers out of chimneys.
When HomeMasters opened in 1990, they were aiming for the very top?literally. The specialists in all things roofing and gutters earned a reputation for excellence thanks to their team of full-time employees with years of experience. In fact, their services were so trusted that their clients began asking them to expand into other fields of home maintenance. Today, HomeMasters offers fence repair, painting and staining, grout and tile sealing, bathroom and kitchen remodeling, and clearing out former residents.
