Maker Tony Rouleau of Hillview Wood and Metal made this branding iron for me and to say that I was pleased would be the understatement of the year. There is just something right about owning a tool that was custom made just for me and feels like it will be around when the cockroaches rule the world again. Rock solid and heavy duty.
These are a pair of commissioned Doctor Who Converse High Tops hand stenciled with screen printing ink completed in 2014. These were for the client’s daughter’s birthday and by all reports were a smashing success.
Here is a work bench made for a gunsmith in mahogany, brass, and rubber mat. I made this in 2012 for a local gun collector who needed the different surfaces for the assembly and disassembly of guns. The mahogany is raised above the work surface to keep small parts from getting knocked off the bench top. The bench is part of an entire gun room which included mahogany cabinetry to house over 100 rifles, pistols, and ammunition.

This week we released the Faking It podcast episode which featured the interview with Jimmy Diresta. We were excited when we were recommended by an article in Make Magazine written by Caleb Kraft.
I have to admit, it was pretty exciting to see the first time that we are mentioned in an article. It is encouraging to keep making the podcast and try to contribute to the Maker Movement and community.
So proud to have had the opportunity to talk to Jimmy Diresta on the latest episode of the Faking It Podcast. Jimmy is a gentleman, maker extraordinaire, and all around very cool guy. I believe that he is quite possibly the real mayor of New York City.
You can see Jimmy’s latest video here:
