Reid Bruggemann grew up using tools to build creative projects at home. As a teenager, he worked as a stone-cutter at a custom jewelry shop, which introduced him to fine craftsmanship. He also learned basic metalworking skills. He began designing and building furniture as a young adult. It soon became clear that having a strong understanding of materials and technique would help him to create good designs.
