How and why:
Benjamin and Erin met working at TechShop in Round Rock TX - a community maker-space where they taught shop classes and helped members build their dream projects.
The shop closed down last year and they knew they wanted to stay connected to other makers to continue learning and sharing skills.
Their focus now is on creating a YouTube channel centered around DIY tutorials, challenges of working with space and budget limitations, and general advice related to making.
