Spiraling down the iron stairs Kyle Frerichs installed in the center of his house, we enter a tightly organized workshop. It goes far beyond the common — peg boards holding the hand tools and a workbench with a vise mounted at the corner — to another height of possibilities.
There are industrial relics of the mid 20th century weighing as much as a ton each standing side by side, with metal shavings scattered among them, hinting at the craftsmanship they are part of.
Kyle, 33, not only pulled these machines out of the corners of Craigslist and gave them new life. He’s managed to connect one of them, so far, to the contemporary age of auto-producing work following his web-based designs.
Standing amid the machines Kyle uses for various house, creative and side-hustle projects, we reach past his stoic and humble demeanor to talk about his amazing jack-of-all-trades skills.
We get into what motivates him and how he views his creative process. We dip into what he sees for the future of transportation and the possibility of fate.
