The beginning of Stevenson Projects' Blog...

Hello, and welcome to Stevenson Projects' Blog! We are looking forward to sharing many of our thoughts, tips, new ideas, and general ramblings about design on this blog. Between our family members, we have over a century of experience in the design world, from homebuilt boats, industrial design and product prototyping, experimental alternative-fuel boats, cars and bicycles, home projects like swimming pools and greenhouses, to wooden toys, pedal cars, and playhouses! A pretty broad range of design interests and experiences to discuss...As one can imagine, with that many first-time machines and projects, a lot of pretty amusing stories have happened over the decades!

We'll share our views and ideas, what sort of techniques we've come to use over time, tips on how to avoid a few of the stumbling points—And maybe more than a few of the silly moments as well!

As this is a family business, and we have several designers in our family, we're going to try posting and commenting on each other's thoughts as we see fit! This may or may not work—we certainly enjoy the repartee of the two guys on the radio who chat about cars, but we'll see if we can find a style anywhere near as fun. We hope so!

We hope you'll enjoy this page, and maybe feel inspired to make some memories and projects of your own to share with us all!
