This detailed hand-painted woodgraining is done by Rob, a retired panel beater in New Zealand for his family business, unambiguously named 'Rob's Woodgrained Bike Frames.' His main work is adult bikes if you like the effect it owuld probably be more worth it for a fullsize set of wheels.
I think the reason I am attracted to this is I love people re-using skills they already have and applying them to new ideas and businesses. A lot of the small designers we support are using skills they developed in their first careers to start their own businesses. It is this kind of resourcefulness and open mindedness that starts new ideas. How do you use your first working life skills for your new work/business project?
