"The business is going well," says Gara. "I am pretty much out in my garage everyday working, and I seem to have orders from customers fairly constantly." Befitting his training in science, Gara takes a precise and analytical approach to his woodworking, and shares his methodology both online and live.
"I have done talks on woodworking. I have also taught people one-on-one," says Gara. "Using Instagram I try to teach through pictures and videos and emails to people. I try to do small instructional 'how-to' videos and even video series on complete projects."
Gara has also been nominated for the 2017 Wood Industry 40 Under 40 Awards,
"I get a lot of feed back and try my best to answer questions and help people through the steps of a piece," says Gara. "I guess I feel like people have helped me so much to get to where I am, that I want to try and help others too."
