It is always exciting to receive orders from abroad. Fortunately, since the Netherlands is such a small country, there is a lot what we Dutchies call abroad. Therefore, 80% of the tools I make do not stay in the Netherlands but are shipped abroad. But this weeks was exciting, since I received an order from the United Stated of America, a country new on the list! Yes, I'm proud!
