Hi all, I’m Josh.
I’m a product manager by day, working with software engineers to build digital products and services for (mostly) cool fintech companies.
I’m an aspiring hobbyist woodworker/software engineer/electrical engineer/3D printist(?) generally looking to take an inter-disciplinary approach to creating full physical products. In other words, I like to play around with Arduino’s and then make nice casings for them
Now I’m a member, I have two projects I’d like to work on. Once I’ve been able to get to a woodshop induction, I have an old 70’s mahogany desk that needs a revamp, a darker stain, and a new leather top inlay.
Whilst I wait for that, I’d like to begin my first proper Arduino project - an Alexa/voice-command activated automatic blind opener.
I also heard about the purchase of the arch next door when I came to the open evening. Would be very happy to help out renovating the space so that I can pick up some skills along the way.
Looking forward to getting stuck in and meeting everyone!
