Meet Sir Steam-a-Lot
My real name is Erez Benari, and I'm a computer engineer from Sammamish, Washington. I've been a fan of science fiction since early childhood and in recent years I've started making my own steampunk and geekdom accessories, jewelry, toys and misc items. In my work, I use a variety of tools and techniques, from simple carpentry and sewing to metal casting and CAD Laser cutting. I acquire most of the base materials and parts from thrift stores like Goodwill and Value Village, as well as other recycled-parts stores, with both cost-cutting and environmental consideration in mind.
