As a professional carpenter and woodworker I’m always looking for ways to optimize my products and services, as well as combining collaboration and carpentry. Although I have a woodshop of my own, I recently completed a project at My Own Two Hands, where the relatively dust free environment and floor space allowed for the quality finished product I was aiming for. However, the best part of working at My Own Two Hands was the people! As I was working on my project, other members would come over to chat, and I would wander over to their projects to chat. Amateurs, fellow pros, Jeff and Trista, Duke! It was so great!
I learned a lot from being in what I would really describe as a collaborative/co-working space. Being able to learn from and observe others, share recommendations, or swap stories and ideas was very rewarding. The friends and connections, both personal and professional, are without a doubt the best perk of working out of My Own Two Hands. To my fellow professionals, give collaboration and carpentry a shot, you will not be disappointed!
