[Video Link] Maker Faire is just a few weeks away, and we are profiling some of the makers who will be showing their creations there. Here's Sung Kim, experimental musical instrument maker.
Sung Kim's father gave him his first skil saw when he was just seven years old. His mother provided him with modeling clay as a safer alternative not long after that. Sung's grandfather-in-law, ship builder Dean Stevens, left him a coveted collection of hand tools decades later. These influences shaped his abilities as a woodworker, but his desire to create sound formed him into a Maker.
Sung Kim, his collection of instruments, and a very ambitious secret project will be at Maker Faire Bay Area, May 21 & 22. There you can hear Sung perform and bask in the intricate structures of his Sympathetic Cannon, The Si-Tarzan, and the Ox.
