My First Major Consumer Product
I have designed metalworking tools and other various products for years. If you drive an American automobile there is a good chance that a tool I designed was used to help make your vehicle. It's satisfying work, but I always wished I could design a product that regular people used. I've done minor work on a few kitchen products but never really anything that I considered MY design. Well, a new product is going into stores now that is MY design.
Pictured is a new V-slicer that I did a majority of the design work on. The idea was to design a slicer that worked like a mandolin but without the hassle and expense, and this is what I came up with. I can't wait to stop in a Bed Bath & Beyond or Sur La Table and see it hanging on a rack. I'll probably even be a real dork and record QVC the first time it's sold on there.
