The first question I asked myself was "why a blog?" Tons of answers rushed back. When I really looked at them, they all boiled down to one thing: Connection. I create things with my hands and I have a desire to connect with others who also create. The Internet has opened the world to us - and I'd like to be part of that. So welcome to my blog. I look forward to sharing ideas, experiments, experiences, and questions, and to meeting others in the online community.
