About the Author

Matt Berger is a designer and builder of everyday objects, and the author of The Handmade Skateboard (Spring House Press, 2014). A lifelong hobby enthusiast and workshop adventurer, Matt makes a living creating digital products, and makes a passion out of building physical products in his garage workshop and local maker spaces. Matt earned his stripes in the woodshop as an editor at Fine Woodworking magazine, where he launched FineWoodworking.com, and produced and starred in how-to videos for the website. Matt applied all the skills learned and practiced at the Fine Woodworking shop to create a series of workshops teaching students of all ages how to build a handmade skateboard. That turned into his first book and the DIY brand SK8Makers. The Handmade Teardrop Trailer is his second book. He lives in Northern California.


"This is a dangerous book. If, like me, you've harbored secret dreams of building a teardrop trailer, there's a very good chance Matt Berger's book will send you over the edge. Plenty of really good tips and sound information ensure a road-worthy home away from home. This is a truly excellent resource." -Mike Pekovich, author of The Why and How of Woodworking
