What started as tinkering with his model railroading hobby, Eric’s passion for making began at an early age. His interest in DIY was born out of necessity, when he began to rent the very house he grew up in, making repairs and upgrades along the way. Fondness for tools quickly blossomed, and eventually, while laying claim to a basement workshop, he dug out his father’s vintage Craftsman wood vice, passed down from his father before him. This was the spark that ignited a passion for the Craftsman brand. Eric stands by Craftsman’s quality: a Craftsman tool, regardless of origin or manufacturer, is still made to the rigid specifications that Craftsman sets for it. Since his rediscovery of that old wood vice, Eric’s collection of tools and love for the brand have grown exponentially. He named his workshop the Craftsman Cave, and started to blog about the care and use of his tools, hence this blog was created.
