ZAC BUILDS

Meet Zac Builds!

Zac is a Toronto contractor turned online content creator. He began to learn about residential construction through spending his weekends on jobsites with his father and grandfather as a boy. Zac’s life-long interest in construction has provided him with a truly diverse skillset and the propensity to think outside the box. He is a jack-of-all-trades in the maker’s community who does not want to limit himself to one medium or craft: “If anything, I consider my craft to be learning as many different building techniques as possible.” Check out Zac’s YouTube channel where he shares videos on furniture making in such different mediums as wood, concrete, and steel!

Favorite Project: My desk. I designed it from the ground up to be the ultimate video editing workstation, so it's got basically every modern piece of tech you could imagine integrated into the desk. It truly tested my skills as a woodworker.

Zac’s Pro Tip: Always try new things. Push yourself outside your comfort zone as often as possible. The act of learning itself is a skill, and the more you practice it the better you get.

NICK ZACHRY

Nick is a truly remarkable individual who creates awesome tools and stunning masterpieces with wood. But that’s not the most amazing thing about Nick. Being a craftsman with one hand, his very first build was a game controller that allowed him to play video games with a controller designed for two-handed people. What a unique and inspiring entry into the world of woodworking.

Nick also makes some of the most incredible infill hand planes. I recently purchased an infill block plane from him and love it!

Favorite project: “My favorite project is my 21-inch infill jointing plane. This project thoroughly tested my limits as a craftsman. Most of the components were cut out by hand with my trusty hacksaw. The lever cap is bronze, and the body is made of mild steel infilled with Katalox.”

Nick’s pro-tip: “The best advice I can give if you are looking to improve your work is to share it with others and engage with communities. We can connect with one another unlike any other point in history. Almost every person I have met in maker communities are genuine and kind and they can share tacit knowledge that far surpasses the baseline. Engage with others, lift others up, and allow others to be critical when it's constructive.”
