What do you want to make?

Most of my major projects are vehicular (restoration, hot-rodding, or scratch-building) but I also plan to reupholster a sectional couch, do some miscellaneous woodwork, etch bottles for my homebrew, learn to build and program Arduino projects and see where that takes me, restore a piano (started once before but had to leave it behind when moving), and on and on. My dad has ALS and I hope to be able to create some mobility devices for him in order to maintain his quality of life and assist my mother from across the continent. Hopefully every new piece of equipment I learn will inspire new projects as well. Whatever I make is for my own entertainment and utility but if I someday strike upon something worth selling I'm not opposed to augmenting my income and funding yet more projects!


I excelled at being a Taker-aparter growing up but am aspiring to increase my Making skills. I spend my days with hands full of plastic keyboard and mouse so I need to fulfill my busted-knuckle quota after hours!
