Look, I know y’all are here for the posts by Suzo “the Saucy Indexer” Ellison and Megan. But if you aren’t totally sick of me and my voice, there’s a new podcast out there that might amuse you.
The Why Make? guys interviewed me last year for their podcast with high-end makers and artists. I am definitely the outlier when it comes to their guests.
In the podcast, we delve into my early days as a business boy. My first woodworking business? Making jewelry from bark I found in my neighbor’s mulch. Then selling it to the younger kids in the neighborhood. I also had a brief spat trying to counterfeit $100 bills that didn’t end well.
Luckily, I got some ethics installed in my redneck brain.
Listen to the podcast here.
And if you want to hear a really cool episode of Why Make? Check out this one with Michael Puryear.

Only special high-end markers [sic] for outliers. This sounds like fun. A must listen.
Just finished the episode. Really enjoyed it! You inspired me to go to my shop and make stuff. Thank you!
Enjoyed the pod! I always listen to podcast or audiobooks while I work. It was a nice back story.
Finally took the time to listen and really enjoyed the interaction of ideas and philosophies. Why Make is now on my home page. I must disagree with one statement that ‘art’ hung on a wall is not an interactive form as furniture is. We have lots of art from around the world purchased on our travels and we visually and spiritually interact with it daily as much as the Stickley end tables I built or the 2 Shop of the Crafters Morris chairs in our living room.
