My Dad was the original Maker in my world. With "The Workshop" in our ample basement, he could make or repair just about anything. I learned how to take things apart and love tools very young. Bikes, motors, fiberglass covered hulls, motorcycles, bows and personally fletched arrows all got the attention they deserved. Many of those tools now see regular duty in my garage. I'm a charter Make subscriber with interests in everything Maker. Special interests include eBikes, solar powered anything, robotics, and quadcopters.
