Today's Spotlight- Stratum Designs

Our story's heroes, Dan and Ravi, are more than just craftsmen; they are maestros of wood and design. Imagine this: Dan, a carpentry connoisseur, and Ravi, a design dynamo, joined forces in Cornwall, bonded by their admiration for the outdoors and exquisite furniture.

Their workshop is a symphony of hand tools and machinery, where modern marquetry waltzes with traditional craftsmanship. But oh, there's a twist in the tale! Woodworking, while enchanting, can be a bit dusty.

"Stratum Designs redefines modern marquetry, merging reclaimed materials and artistic flair to craft unique, sustainable pieces that each tell a story!"

What respiratory protection do they use?

Enter our hero, the 3M 7502 Half Mask, accompanied by its trusty sidekick, the 3M 6035 P3R Filter. Together, they form a powerful duo, guarding Dan and Ravi against those pesky fine wood dust particles. Thanks to this fantastic mask-filter combo, our woodworking wizards can now carve, cut, and create, while their lungs blast out a hearty sea shanty.

As the sawdust settles each day, Dan and Ravi can look upon their creations – from intricate tables to bespoke kitchens – and know that they've crafted something special. And thanks to their trusty respiratory gear, they can do it all while breathing easy.
