Matt Berger, a lifelong hobby enthusiast and workshop adventurer, makes a living helping companies design and build digital products. A former editor at Fine Woodworking, where he launched, Matt applied all his Fine Woodworking knowledge to create a series of workshops in his garage and maker spaces teaching students of all ages how to build a skateboard. That turned into his first book, The Handmade Skateboard and the DIY brand SK8Makers. With The Handmade Teardrop Trailer, Matt has expanded his DIY ambitions to help makers escape in style to the great outdoors.
