BME: What is your name?
OCS: I go by Cam or Cameron… no preference really. I live in Toronto with my girlfriend (touchthedutch on etsy) and one cat (no etsy shop yet). I love city life and couldn’t imagine it without my bike.
BME: How did you get started?
OCS: I got into woodworking about five years ago when I first moved to Toronto. So many people here put their old broken furniture out by the curb. For some reason I couldn’t stop myself from taking it home with me and trying to do something with it. Since then I became a cetified furniture maker and now work full time building furniture, cabinets, and making things for etsy.
BME: Do you have a favorite piece in your shop?
OCS: Not particularly… it’s usually my most recent item.
BME: What motivates you?
OCS: The enjoyment I get from designing things… and it doesn’t hurt that wood is such a lovely median to work with.
BME: What is your decorating style?
OCS: street furniutre…
BME: Do you prefer indoors or outdoors?
OCS: It’s imposible to choose one over the other
BME: What’s your favorite season?
OCS: Winter stinks! I love everything outside of the December through February.
BME: Do you listen to music while you work? What is your favorite genre?
OCS: To one side of my studio my neighbour likes to play bad eighties pop music, on the other side my neighbour likes to listen to bad electronic dance music. I usually just run my machines to dry and drown these offending sounds out.
