Chris: I have been an artist and maker all my life, and have been writing and editing in the online DIY community since 2007. I love to combine traditional woodworking with contemporary design and printmaking to create functional pieces of art and design. My favorite place to buy supplies for craft projects is the hardware store, like my local Gearhart's True Value.
Bruno: I've been blogging for almost 10 years (I know, crazy!). I've probably been DIY-ing things my whole life, but my real home-improvement DIY experience stretches back about six years. My DIY expertise is actually in digital things; computers, photography, programming, etc. My local True Value store is River Lake True Value, in the heart of the thriving, diverse Lake Street district in Minneapolis.
