Beyond Home Renovation: The Tool Library & Closed Circuit
by Todd Shwayder, Tool Library Coordinator

Last week at the PhinneyWood Tool Library, I was visited by a young artist who, with other talented local fashion designers, jewelers, ceramicists, and visionaries, told me she had taken on the daunting task of renovating an old storefront space in Capital Hill and installing a pop-up shop (to run until the end of the year).

Jessica Carter is the Manager / Curator at Love City Love. Being a PNA member herself, she knew that the PhinneyWood Tool Library would be the first place to look for borrowing all the tools they would need for renovation and installation. She came to me with an extensive list of tools. After discussing her possible construction methods and troubleshooting difficult concepts, Jessica drove away with her station wagon packed to the brim with everything they were going to need to get the job done.

I stopped by last night for the opening party. It was beautiful! Seattle Met Magazine called it a sensory experience plus shopping. Closed Circuit will be up through Monday 29th. If you get a chance this weekend, I recommend you check it out. You might get inspired to make renovating a New Year’s resolution, and if you do, the Tool Library will be here to make sure this resolution comes true.
