The magic happens because I follow my heart and the materials & people I have access to.
I could never have done this alone.
Heres to those special people who helped make all this happen.

Well it was a lot of bungling and stumbling and breaking things but ultimately 20 years later I am the guy who everyone goes to with this kind of work.
Upcycling is the industry term but I much prefer REFITTING. its more accurate and truly what I feel like I am doing.
And now I even teach classes. applieddeconstruction101.com
It's just grown and grown and I am looking at doing a craft book that I can sell here on Etsy when it is done. I am also going to do PDF project instructions right here on Etsy too (as soon as I can get to them).
Everything is so exciting right now!
So good to be finding my way and inspiration all around in some of the most ordinary objects!
And recently I just got a mention in a book in Korea! YAY!
