Miniviews series - No. 10 with Sam Raimondi
You’ve landed on the tenth installment of the Maker Miniviews series called “I’m a Maker Because…” The structure of this maker series is that Scott Mathson, Makerviews asks different makers two questions. That’s it, two questions. These text, maker interviews are quick and to-the-point, all while providing insight from a wide variety of truly talented individuals!
As makers, we all need to support each other in getting out there and making things. With that, brevity is key. That’s why I’ve taken a two-question approach in this series. Check out this interview with Sam Raimondi of DIY Huntress.
I'm a Maker Because...
Sam Raimondi interview
What inspires you to keep making things?
"Making things has always been a huge part of my life. It’s part of my DNA. I can’t go too long without making something, or I feel incomplete. Just like we need food, air, and water to survive. I need to be able to make things to function like a proper human!"
What one piece of advice would you give to other, budding woodworkers?
"Never be afraid to make a mistake when first starting out. Mistakes can only hold you back if you are not willing to learn from them."
Short, but sweet with advice relevant to making things and in living and learning in life, as well.
"Mistakes can only hold you back if you are not willing to learn from them." — Sam Raimondi
