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.
AH Beads's colourful shop strives to meet the evolving needs of beading fanatics. Boasting a selection of products that encompasses more than 50,000 items, each store equips beading and jewellery artisans with a huge array of materials, tools, and accessories for creating wearable works of art. Chains sparkle in hues of gunmetal, copper, and sterling silver; Swarovski crystal beads, freshwater pearls, and rhinestone rondelles sparkle as brilliantly as a nuclear physicist wrapped in tinfoil. Books and tools help to guide burgeoning bead manipulators in their craft, helping to facilitate the use of techniques and updates on current trends.

Countless do-it-yourself projects would never have seen the light of day were it not for Aurora Rents—gardens would remain untended, furniture unsanded, bedrooms unpainted. Luckily, the locally owned and operated business has rented tools and equipment—all properly cared for—to northwestern craftspeople for 50 years. Equally as vital, each employee carries industry expertise around in his or her tool belt, and delights in providing insights, safety tips, and techniques for refinishing floors or shellacking homemade Trojan horses.
We’re passionate about working in partnership with customers to formulate architectural paints, industrial coatings, automotive finishes, water-proof coatings and wood-care products that achieve desired results and set the industry standard for excellence.
