My friend Robert is one of those guys who starts with an enthusiasm like bicycles, banjos or sausage making and tackles it from the top down. First, he tries his hand at assembling something from bought parts and before you know it, he's milling his own steel and laser cutting drop-outs. Well, almost. At any rate, this is a guy who loves to get his hands dirty and by the look of his new bike frame, you can tell that there are no shortcuts or half-measures involved. Hat tip, Roberto. You are a man's man. More of the album here.

Who is the Dude behind DudeCraft?
Paul Overton is a prolific blogger, maker, writer, and ukulele player living in Hardwick, MA with three dogs, his closest co-conspirator, and a lawn that makes his octogenarian neighbors want to call the authorities. He delights in the unusual and can often be found in his tiny studio, whipping up some sort of self-indulgent nonsense for his own amusement.

DudeCraft represents a different kind of tribe in the world of making things, intentionally blurring the lines between, art, craft, engineering, and the good old “Can Do” spirit. Makers of all stripes are welcome here and are encouraged to join the conversation, no matter what their enthusiasms. Guys who knit, girls who weld, it’s all the same on DudeCraft. We are people who make cool stuff, have an urge to share it, and don’t mind explaining how we did it, so that other folks can benefit from our experience.
