Carpenter & Fabricator
I am a carpenter and fabricator based out of Eastern MA and love to work with both wood and metal. I am also a vintage machinery enthusiast and really enjoy the process of restoring/rebuilding antique tools and machinery. Whether it's trimming out a room or machining replacement parts for a restoration, I'm always up for a challenge and love problem solving.
Red Seal Carpenter
I'm a Jack of all trades, master of one. No matter the size of project, I will tackle it. It’s the oddly satisfying things that get us all in a daze, and you can see that throughout my content along with new and unique tools. I'm a loving husband to Ashley and a father to my beautiful daughter Ivy. I want you all to remember: mistakes are just another word for EXPERIENCE and confidence is key.
Site Supervisor, Lead Carpenter & Mentor
I’m a Red Seal carpenter. I have been in the trade since 1999. Before that, I spent time in the Canadian Armed Forces. I’ve been fortunate to experience all aspects of the trade: residential, commercial and industrial. I enjoy new footing to finish builds, and the challenge of renovating an old house. I am fortunate to be able to mentor and teach the next generation. I’m a huge advocate for the rising apprentice.
Commercial Building Engineer
As a building engineer you'll find me bouncing across several job fields. I may be doing plumbing repairs today and drywall, electrical or painting tomorrow. Outside of work I am a hobbyist woodworker and a tool reviewer. I love spending time with my kids, a steady flow of caffeine and watching baseball.
Remodeler & Carpenter
As a self taught siding installer who works alone, I am constantly seeking ways to make every task a bit more efficient. I'm not afraid to think outside the box and try new ways of doing things. Fun fact: the oldest tool in my daily carry is a 25mm Olfa knife that was given to me by an OLFA rep over 15 years ago.
I love building things and problem solving. Avid golfer, fishermen, musician, carpenter, leather smith, father of 4 and husband of 1. I’m also quite into fitness and my favourite quote is by David Miles, “I’m getting old, but I’m not old yet”. I long to have everyone I know feel honoured and respected, and I desire to always make better, and give support to, that which I have any influence over.
HVAC/R and Woodworker
I’m a hobby woodworker and maker. I love working with my hands and I’m not afraid to take on something new. I’m a sales professional in the HVAC/R trade for my day job. For the last 20 years I’ve been on all sides of the business: wholesale, manufacturing and now a manufactures rep working with contractors weekly. The love of tools, fixing things and working with my hands came from my Dad and I thank him for that!
"Jake" of All Trades
My day to day is all over the spectrum. I can go from running wire in an attic to trimming excess filament from a 3D print. I love working on cars, woodworking, metal fabrication, and using my hands and mind whenever a project falls in my lap. Whether it’s trimming edge banding and veneers or cutting sheathing off of wire, I am right at home in just about any shop.
Residential Framing Contractor
I’m Alvin from Living Legends Construction Inc. We are residential framing contractors in Edmonton, Alberta Canada area. I love what I do after a day of framing you can look back at what you did and actually see progress, it’s Instant gratification plus since is was a kid I’ve always loved tools, tools and more tools… I don’t get that wearing a suit and tie.
Hey everyone, Jim here from the greater Chicago area. I’m a trade butcher of over 10 year with a love for woodworking. In my shop I enjoy turning wood on my lathe, building furniture and restoring old tools among other things. I have two children and another one due in about a month. I am excited to be back apart of the Olfa Pro All Stars! I love Olfa knives and can’t wait to show them off along the way!
My father, the original James West, inspired me to be a welder. At age 12 he handed me the mig gun for my first lesson and I was instantly hooked. I have gained diverse experience in the industry over my 20+ year career. As the owner of James West Welding, I strive to showcase the passion I have for the industry, looking for ways to inspire current and future welders. I reside in Syracuse, NY. I'm married with 3 kids. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with my pitbulls, riding my motorcycles, & collecting Star Wars helmets.
I am a Level 3 HVAC/R Apprentice in Vancouver, BC. I work with my dad and brother in commercial and light industrial air conditioning and refrigeration. I love my trade because there is always something new to learn and a challenge to overcome. I am currently the President of Women in HVAC/R Canada- an organization that brings awareness, education to women in HVAC-related roles. I am addicted to social media and you can find me on Instagram every day.
