Tools in Big Lake

Select Local Merchants

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.

Many things in water are completely invisible: heavy metals, minerals, the ghosts of popped bubbles. The team at Water Doctors Water Treatment can test for those and other imperceptible contaminants. Then, technicians and engineers help get rid of them with water filtration system options. Depending on the client's needs, a reverse osmosis system or a large-tank water filtration system might be the best call.

Most inflatable stand-up paddleboards are 4 inches thick, but Metro Lakes Marina and Rentals’ stand-up paddleboards measure a military-grade 6 inches thick, riding ride high in the water and never sagging in the middle. The team’s eye for details like this extends to their watercrafts, too. Their jet skis, for example, are all 2013 models from Yamaha and Sea Doo, and cushioned pontoons ferry you and up to 11 friends or mannequins posed as friends across Lake Minnetonka. To ensure safe navigation of the waters, pontoon drivers receive operating instructions and a map of the lake before shoving off.

Anglers can also hunt fish species from large-mouth bass to muskies aboard the company’s fishing boats. Fishermen and women shouldn’t get too attached to their hauls; however, because Metro Lakes Marina and Rentals adheres to catch-and-release practices.
