5c Coffee Crew Questions:
1.) What’s your trade?
I get to make furniture out of whatever material I find around Ballard Reuse, which makes me a furniture designer and a very lucky man.
2.) How long have you been crafting/collecting and how did you get into it?
I grew up with an industrial designer for a father and spent my time growing up in a shop making stuff. So…my whole life.
3.) What is the most prized item you have found in the store?
That would be the 1 million dollars that I found in a cabinet–second best would be the tin Buddha I found in between floors on a [salvage] job.
4.) What do you do with your non-Ballard Reuse time?
I have taken up dirt jumping and gravity defiance as a hobby with my younger son, Griffin–beyond that I spend my time adoring my wife Carolyn and molding my sons Max and Griffin into productive members of society.
5.) Favorite Beer or other beverage?
I am a cider person these days
6.) Most used/favored tool:
My Makita impact driver is an extension of my body.
7.) What are you working on RIGHT NOW?
A table for some folks out of the Boeing crate material that should be real good.
8.) How do you take your coffee?
Iced and khaki colored.
Final words of wisdom:
Like my mom’s ex-boyfriend, Earl the Hog farmer used to say, “There ain’t nothin’ like doing it!”.
