Hi, my name is Jim Sowers and I make stuff.
I believe that making stuff with your hands is amazing. Helping a child make stuff with their hands is doubly amazing. It gives them (and you) a sense of accomplishment and limitless potential.
When I was little, my dad was always helping me make things and to this day, I still value those lessons.
This blog will help you make things that you can keep. Things that you can play with or give as gifts. Things that will amaze you.
You don’t have to be a carpenter. You don’t even have to have a kid around to make these things. You don’t have to be especially “handy.” The tools here will explain how stuff is put together and how it works.
