Sam Robinson - Barbados
I'm Sam, an Exercise Physiologist and self-taught DIYer. The best way to get to a project is to "just start"! I love setting myself projects like picnic benches, chairs, and furniture builds. When I was a young boy my grandfather used to sit on his patio every day in an Adirondack chair he built himself, something that always gave him great pride. He was a man of few words but his smile said it all! Though he is no longer with us, his brilliant creations are still with his family today, and a testament to the value of hard work, innovation and creativity.
My motivation continues with my 2 year old daughter.
I involve her in my woodwork and encourage her to help Daddy because I want her to know she can do, build, or create anything she puts her mind to!
I entered this competition to encourage other handymen and women, even if they haven't undertaken a project yet...to pick up some tools and "just start"!
