For many tradesmen, the person who sparked their interest in working with their hands was their father or grandfather. With Father's Day approaching, Crescent Tools asked some of America's most influential online building and tool influencers how their father or grandfather influenced them.
Doing Things Right: The Most Important “How To”
Matt Risinger’s dad wasn’t a builder by trade, but he taught him the importance of doing things the right way. That core belief has helped him run a successful residential construction company, focused on building beautiful homes that last. See Matt’s work on his YouTube channel, Build with Matt Risinger.
Work Ethic – A Tool Passed from Generation to Generation
Building on his Father’s Foundation
Jeff Thorman started using hand tools with his father, helping him remodel and flip houses at a young age. He learned the value of hard work and now he’s passing it—and his 25 years of professional contractor experience—on to his own son. See Jeff’s work on his YouTube channel, Home RenoVision DIY.
“If you build it, it’s yours.” It’s a lesson Mike Montgomery’s dad taught him through his actions as much as his words. As a child, Mike watched his father literally build a home and a way of life for his family. Today, Mike’s building a life and career of his own on the foundation his dad helped lay. See Mike’s work on his YouTube channel, Modern Builds.
