I'm Ryan "Zieak" McFarland and have been pretty crafty since I was a teen. I used to spend a lot of time doing Native American crafts like beading, leatherwork, basketry and other frontier skills. Now I do some woodworking, soldering, home repairs and improvements... but I really love making things out of someone's trash. Check out the featured author article about me
here on Instructables.
My wife of two years is Pepper
. When she moved to the town I lived in she couldn't find work in her field so she started selling some of the things we make both locally and online. We also made custom glasses from wine bottles
for many friends for our wedding. She is adept at picking up projects that I have abandoned or being willing to repeat projects to sell for money.
Our son likes to get in on the making too. He likes working on his tree fort, selling things at the local market that we helped get started
in our town, and is developing an interest in wood working. This summer he made marshmallow guns to give to friends and sell at the market.
