A Father and Son Adventure

As a kid in middle school and high school, I took a myriad of “trade” classes—wood shop, metal shop, and electrical/electronic classes—even home economics. These classes taught me a whole set of DIY tools that have served me well over the years. Unfortunately, many of these classes are not offered in school anymore. Because of this, I needed to find a fun way to teach my kids these classic and much needed skill sets.

At first, we started making Steampunk gadgets and accessories for Halloween costumes. Then we progressed to simple wood-shop type gifts. This past Christmas, my son and I built lamps for his grandfathers. It was quite rewarding.

Because I wanted to teach other responsibilities as well, skills like budgeting and project management, etc., we have decided to start our own Etsy shop. Together we design, build, market and sell our products—which are of a rustic, vintage style with an occasional hint of Steampunk flavor.

Our products are hand-crafted with a careful eye to detail. We are quite serious about safety, so every electrical component is brand-new and UL Certified and each connection is double-checked for security and safety. As well, we pride ourselves on the presentation of the product—the coolness effect. Every metal component is thoroughly cleaned and prepped. Finished pieces receive 2 coats of primer and paint as well as a finishing clear coat. Unfinished metal components receive 2 coats of clear enamel. Wood Components are sanded, stained and sealed. All paints, stains, and effect finishes are manually applied and may vary slightly from the photos.
