Well, more like "about me" -
When I was about 11, I started spending summers working for my grandparents, bailing hay and straw. This is when I started learning what "work" is, albeit, work that was not as hard as it was when my grandfather was that age. I remember one of these summers, while helping my grandfather in the shop, and of course not doing it right, he told me, "If you're going to do it, do it right". This statement has stuck with me all these years and is the reason that the small details of design and the quality of the build are crucial to me.
Fast forward, I went to school for architecture and worked in the architecture field. I spent a lot of time designing large scale buildings and watching them get built. It was great to see this take place, but I began to realize that I could not control all aspects of how the parts of these large buildings fit together. There are many factors for this, but it really comes down to time, money, and scale. At that scale, time and money could not be compromised for the "small" details. That's when I came to find that the small details are most important to me. By significantly reducing the scale, I can be pickier about the small details to bring you the best product possible.
Design is fun for me, working with my hands is important to me, and if I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it right.
