Art of the Hands

Time to Tinker

About the Author

Hi! My name is the Mormon Minecrafter. Yes, I am Mormon but no I do not currently play Minecraft though I have in the past. I have a love of tinkering and learning about how things work that is literally as old as I am, and when I say literally I mean literally. I have been told that pretty much as soon as I was strong enough to sit up on my own, I started flipping my baby toys over and hitting them so that I could try to figure out how they worked. Even now, though my techniques have advanced greatly, I still love trying to figure out how things work. But that’s not all I do.

Apparently, my parents were pretty smart (who knew!), because at a young age they introduced me to the world of woodworking. It was a great way to get some of my energy out in a non-destructive environment and as a result, I grew up cutting shapes out of wood, designing projects, getting completely covered in sawdust and loving every moment of it. I have even experimented with other building crafts from time to time but I am always working with my hands in one form or another. Now that I am in college though, I don’t get the luxury of having a workshop in my basement anymore and so my energies have started to be directed to more compact outlets that involve much fewer tools. Because of this change, I am now exploring an entirely different world of “tinkering” than I had previously known.

The purpose of this blog is to share my adventure as I explore this new tinkering world I find myself in, and hopefully be able to share some of my knowledge with you. I know that my resources are different than yours will be and so this is not meant to be a place for tutorials, but hopefully reading about my adventures can help you troubleshoot some of the challenges that you may run into while you explore the world of tinkering yourself.
