I have always enjoyed variety in my life and have taken that to the extreme with the many projects I have in various stages of completion. I started this site to push myself to take each one to the final step and have a finished product. Perhaps the desire to continue to write about updates will persuade me to focus on one project at a time and help me clear out my workshop. I take my inspiration from the world around me and the various materials and objects that find me in my day to day life. I live on the western shore of Lake Michigan with my wife, and two daughters.
