The DIY Renaissance

Hello reader,

Through the last decade we have seen an astonishing array of crafters, inventors, developers, and artisans all working towards somewhat similar aims.

The culture we live in lends itself to creativity for many people and whether you have personally explored this or not it has yielded some amazing things.

I often find myself watching some of these kinds of videos to get inspired to create something myself.

Nothing is to no purpose, many of these ideas could become lucrative ventures if you had the time to invest in creating something yourself.

The markets for some of these niche products would astonish you.

While some of these might need a bit of creative re-engineering to be practical, not everyone wants the most practical product. In fact artistry is often the key to making a product appealing even at the cost of practicality.

Would you go so far as to take a similar process and create something unique?

Even the clay in the ground can be used to create everything from stoves to houses, is it any wonder people are waking back up to realize this now as the prices get so inflated?

Even the simplest reminders that we can do something unique can be enough to fuel your creativity.

As time goes by and the tabletop 3d modeling systems gain popularity, they may have a whole second culture of DIY crafters who realize it can be easier to use a simple tool to transform something overlooked into something amazing.

You can find literally hundreds of thousands of videos like these on YouTube. I’ve watched people build everything from shotguns out of copper pipes to whole clay brick manufacturing factories out of molds in their back yards.

Hopefully you have felt some spark of ingenuity by this point. If so then just imagine how much you can accomplish if you create something purely for fun at first. And then depending on how you can improve the process, who knows? Maybe you’ll create the next big thing.

Thanks for reading this!
