The founders of American Workshop describe their public workspace as a ?health club for woodworkers." Much like a gym, the shop is a place where members gain access to specialized equipment that would otherwise take over their entire garage or spouse?s side of the bedroom closet. American Workshop?s experts also assume similar roles as fitness coaches as they lead classes, workshops, and one-on-one training sessions that help participants achieve personal goals.
American Workshop?s array of classes strengthens students? grasp on woodworking essentials through hands-on practice drafting out ideas, measuring out board stock, and exploring the structural and aesthetic qualities of various projects. Students can also learn decorative techniques, such as applying an even finish with stains, dyes, and embarrassing stories that make wood blush. Safety-oriented courses, such as Woodworking 101 for beginners or Intro to Furniture and Cabinetry Design, are designed to boost confidence in using woodworking equipment, and private one-on-one sessions match students up with an expert to clarify lessons covered in classes.
Few people can say they started in their profession as a teenager. Jacob Servais of Pine Ridge Landscaping & Tree Services is one of those few: he interned at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and Horticultural Research Center when he was just 14 years old, when most kids are just climbing trees or dismembering them for slingshot parts. The passion he discovered in that internship led him to give landscaping a shot as a career, and, in turn, to venture out on his own as an entrepreneur.
From the company's founding in 2006 onward, Jacob and wife Jennifer have run their landscaping outfit as a full-service company, complete with two crews of specialists in landscaping and tree handling. Homeowners can look to the landscapers for jobs that span their outdoor property and the seasons, from installation of trees for an envisioned landscape to removal of snow from driveways and sidewalks in the wintertime.
The experienced technicians at Super Seal Sealcoating have been seal-coating driveways and parking lots for 16 years. They begin the seal-coating process by cleaning the asphalt with brushes, brooms, and blowers, before mixing an asphalt emulsion with slate, sealer, and other additives to strengthen and bind the product without using coal tar or duct tape. Lastly, they power-edge the border of the driveway and apply the emulsion with a 4-foot microbristle brush for a uniform finish. Once the techs are finished, driveways must be blocked off for 24?36 hours to prevent marks from car tires or buffalo stampedes. In addition to sealing surfaces, techs also use hot rubberized fillers to fix cracks.
The fixit folk of All American Sealcoatings help homeowners and other asphalt-owners maintain driveways and pavements with a range of repair and refurbishing services. They can repair driveway cracks and sidewalk fissures with a rubberized material before coating the asphalt with a two-step sealcoat, which protects paved surfaces from the rigors of the weather and the weight of a wayward mastodon. Patching, paving, paint-striping can ensure the longevity of a new parking lot, and resurfacing can fix "sunk aprons"—depressions found at the border of driveways.
