When Jim would take Grace to dollhouse shows, he would find tools that he liked. One of the first was a lathe by Ron Bufton. For two years, Jim & Grace collected tools from different shows. Grace promised that one day she would create a roombox workshop for Jim. For Christmas this year, Grace built the roombox shop, as close as possible to what his real life shop looks like. The miniature shop isn't as cluttered as the real shop...
but give Grace & Jim a few more years to find more tools.
