About Fools
Fools With Tools started as a two friends trying to promote the maker community in the UK. It’s now three friends discussing the maker community globally and our place in it. Discussing all aspects of making, The Boys aim to enlighten and entertain as they bring you along on their journey and share their experiences. With an already fantastically active and welcoming community behind them they invite you to get involved in whatever way you can. 

Steve House: Moonshine Metalworks
Despite being a relative newcomer to the craft of blacksmiths Steve is already well on the way to becoming a full time maker, in his spare time he works in a professional ‘shop assisting with both forging and teaching. When not working he can be found in his own workshop in a rural village creating mostly small ironwork but has plans for much larger projects incorporating both metal and wood to film for his YouTube channel.

Brett Mcafee: SkullandSpade13
Hello, my name is Brett McAfee. I have been making things for as long as I can remember. My fascination with learning how things function threw me into many disciplines over the years. My work history contains hands on jobs in printmaking, fabrication, carpentry, design, all the way to the digital world with video production and motion graphics. I love process and efficiency in all aspects of my work. Never stop learning, and make something every day. Even if it’s a sandwich.

Alex Bull-Halfpenny: Al’s Hack Shack.
Al has been a maker all his life, as a kid was fascinated by finding out how things work (i.e. breaking things and taking them apart) and is now a professional colourer-inner. A Jack of all trades from the Lake District, he is a Northern monkey who runs the Youtube channel Al’s Hack Shack.

He also cooks.
