Hey Guys!   Today I wanted to share with you some of my experiences. These pictures are of me a couple years ago when my dad and I really got into making. For Christmas that year we had gotten a new Welder. These are pictures of us working with it and figuring out how it works. Down below is one of our creations using the welder:

Pretty cool, right?  We found this great cruiser bike at a garage sale, but it was too small for us!  So we cut it in half and made it just a little bigger. ;)
We have moved pretty much on from making bikes. We still might make one every once in a while, but the welder is really what got us into making. That is how we discovered Maker Faire, and it all snowballed from there. What I am trying to say here is that whatever you find with making really opens up the doors to all new possibilities you never knew existed. Making is so much more than just doing stuff. It is all about learning and finding new things and helping people and being a community. You can start seeing a theme with these posts, can’t you? Making is really a community effort, in a way that has never been done before.  Good luck out there, and keep Making!
