4 Reasons “The Maker Movement” Will Redefine Traditional Manufacturing in the U.S.

My Dad and I met for lunch recently, and he showed me plans for a custom potting bench he had already designed and built for my mother.  Before I get too far, I should say that it is a beautiful piece and received rave reviews from the ladies at bridge club (nice work Pop).  He wants to market the product online and was looking for pointers from a trusted Xennial on website design, marketing and distribution so he could determine whether or not a larger market existed for the beloved potting bench (i.e. beyond bridge club).  I don't know where my Dad's project will land, but it got me thinking about how DIY could revolutionize our idea of traditional manufacturing.
