Ever wonder how the metal dice are made in our Machine Shop?
I love the technical and design aspects. I want to have a career that keeps my brain engaged, where I can support myself and my family, and be a crazy cat lady. I love being able to bring something home at night and show my family what I’ve made. Becoming a machinist was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done, but it’s the best decision I’ve ever made.
