Install new shop lighting to improve videos!
$50 per month
My shop/office has pretty horrible lighting, so every time I shoot a video, I have to setup lights and spend a good amount of time adjusting them. I'd love to install some dedicated lighting that would make my workspace ready to shoot in ALL OF THE TIME!   If it's easier for me to shoot videos, I'll shoot more of them.
Thanks for your help getting me a better lit workspace!
Patrons get early viewing
$100 per month
Project videos will be live for Patrons at least one day earlier that wide release!
You guys get first access to all new project videos!
Monthly Patron only update/behind the scenes video
$150 per month
I'd love to start a monthly update video that let's you know what projects I've got coming up (usually I keep it all under wraps until it's posted.) as well as some behind the scenes looks at projects in process.
This would also be a chance for you to give me feedback about upcoming videos before they go live!
I'll build a Patron suggested project!

I'll get all patrons to submit an idea, and pick one to make!

I would love to upgrade my camera to get even better quality video, but the next grade of camera that's worth upgrading to is pretty pricey. Help me reach this goal so I can make my projects look even better for you!


I'm a maker, musician, father of 4 and all around explorer.
I produce how-to content showing you exactly how I make all sorts of different things!
My hope is that you'll learn some tricks and be inspired to make the things that YOU want to have!  Making is for EVERYONE!

I also host a podcast, called BrainPick, which showcases awesome people. It's a conversational format to get to know someone you may not know, or get to know a familiar face/voice a little bit better. 
You can find all of the episodes (and links to iTunes, RSS, etc) at

You can find my project videos, blog posts, BrainPick and everything else at

I'm also one of the three hosts of the Making It podcast, http://www.patreon.com/makingit along with Jimmy DiResta and David Picciuto.

What is I Like To Make Stuff ?
Hi, I'm Bob. I'm a maker, father, explorer and musician.  I love making all sorts of stuff, from furniture to software to electronics to stuff for my kids.
I also love sharing the process of creating with people. I love inspiring people to make something that they love, or something that is useful to them.  I love teaching people that they CAN make stuff too.

So, why do I need your support?

Well, I've committed to making all of my content free..  hands down, regardless of the amount of support that I receive. but...
The budget for all of the supplies and tools that I use come straight from my families budget.  I have a wonderful wife and 4 beautiful children that will always come first, so my project budget isn't always what I'd like.

As a patron, your support would help me dedicate more money to supplies and new tools, as well as audio/video equipment. This helps me keep making better videos, of better projects for you to enjoy and learn from. 

Where to find me
I post all of my projects at iLikeToMakeStuff.com and you can subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
I post lots of in progress photos and have lots of conversation on  my Facebook page. I post lots on Instagram and I'm also trying to post more content to my patron-only feed so that my patrons get a preview of what I'm up to.

Thanks so much for checking out my page, and any type of support that you give. I hope you enjoy my projects and are inspired to go make some stuff!!

In case you're interested, I also make music on occasion
