Welcome to my families workshop blog. I am a maker at heart and finally decided to share some of my creations to keep track of all of the fun things I build and design.

Recently my wife and I have been blessed with our twins. We focus on Montessori and Waldorf style toys. Anyone that has ever gone shopping for children’s toys knows that the costs can add up really quickly. So I decided that I would try to build and design as many toys as I could and share how I do it to help others.

Some of my projects include:

  • Building a cedar strip Canoe
  • My own CNC machine
  • 3D Printing
  • Toys
  • Sailboat rebuild
  • Jeep reconstruction

I hope you can find some value in my shared knowledge and most of all have fun!
