Yep, it’s all about dirty hands and tools that could chop your fingers off. I realise that doesn’t at all sound like fun, but it so is to me because I’m back getting dirty again in a metal workshop! (Fingers intact!) I’ve been hanging out at Makerhaus in Seattle recently, and this week I managed to get myself into a class to refresh some old skills and learn some new ones. I’ve been MIG welding, learning how to use the milling machine and playing on my all time favourite tool – the lathe. While I’m not making anything particularly fancy just yet, I am sampling condiment containers and making some sweet little hacks for my home studio.
