Erik Wenstob’s Big Timber Journey
Since he was a child, Erik has been interested in repairing machinery. It all apparently started when Erik decided to restore an old dirt bike in order to go biking with his friend Coleman Willner. After the successful transformation of the two-wheeler, Erik became quite interested in how machines work. He also acquired the skills needed to repair them. However, Erik is not just someone who just likes to repair faulty equipment. He is equally, if not more, fond of creating his own machines. His sharp mind and knack for elegant solutions have made him an asset to the family business.
Had things been a bit different, Erik’s passion for machinery might have led him down a different path. Erik had reportedly been a student of Aerospace Mechanics and hoped to rebuild helicopters one day. However, he felt he was needed at the sawmill in order to help out his parents run the business smoothly. His decision to get involved in the logging business has kept him close to his interests. Meanwhile, his parents cannot help but gush over his skills.
