    Default hello everyone! from the PNW (washington state.)

    what up everyone, from the PNW (WA. STATE.) I started trying to learn originally a few years back at my moms house, but i ended up moving out with my G/F now wife..my supplies just sat in a small garage gathering dust. my wife and I just recently purchased a house so now i have a garage to set up and try to give it a go again.
    for a torch i currently have a red max mega minor. my tools are definitely on the lacking end, working on getting a kiln, but i honestly just want to melt glass and get to learning. any advice would be greatly appreciated on where to start. thank you guys for making this available to people like me starting up!

    Trev's Glass, We are in Marysville We sell AIM kilns and do discount the price some to help with the shipping costs
    You can buy Glass Rod, Tubing, color and tools here at Trev's Glass. Come up sometime and see what we carry
    and hang with these local blowers for a bit. There is always something going on down at the Barn/Shop!
