America is a country of tinkerers, doers, creators and innovators – a nation of people brave enough to not only envision what could be, but willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty in order to get the job done.

There is a special sense of accomplishment that comes from being able to say “I built that,” “I fixed that” and “I found a solution.” We invest time, energy, blood, sweat and tears into maintaining, restoring and caring for the things we care about – and over time, these hands-on investments become the things we take pride in being able to do.

Tinkering is a passion rooted in our country. It can be found in the chronicles of American history and in our individual DIY DNA. From Benjamin Franklin to Steve Jobs, Levis to Liquid Wrench, America was founded on a CAN DO spirit – not only about the mechanics of HOW to do something, but the WHY that compels people to do something. Tinkernation is not just one person, it’s a collective spirit and a cultural revival celebrating the heritage of America’s minds and hands.
