My name is Erol Chandler. I am a middle school science teacher, turned woodworker. I took the long route finding my heart in the woodshop rather than the classroom. I have been building custom furniture for a few years now, and recently fell in love with designing and building lamps. I wake up every morning wanting to create and bring lamps to life. My lamps are not complex, but they are carefully constructed. The wood and parts are sourced locally and I build each one by hand in Eugene, OR. [from kickstarter]

Ninkasi is the ancient Sumerian tutelary goddess of beer [from wikipedia]In 2007, Ninkasi moved to its current location in Eugene's Whiteaker neighborhood. Known for its eclectic art, the two knew this neighborhood would easily foster community. Fast forward to 2011, and the hard work of both founders landed them the fastest growing craft brewery in the United States with a top selling IPA in Oregon. Fast forward to present day, and Ninkasi ranks the 36th largest craft brewer in the United States (Brewers Association, 2015). [from their website]

Teardrops allow you to get out of town fast! Keep your teardrop packed with all the essentials, and you can be out camping in no-time-flat. Just hook up to your pre-packed teardrop, stop at the local grocery store on your way out of town for your perishables, and hit the road. This makes weekend trips painless, and allows for more leisure time when you get where you are going! [from the website]
