While trp613 is a bit of an enigma, if you're in Ottawa you've probably seen his creation, the Sailor Dude around.
What can I say about the Ottawa Tool Library? I owe a big part of The Box Of Life to them because they gave me the tools, knowledge and space to start prototyping the worm bins and help me build this startup a year ago. If you haven't already heard of them, they offer memberships that allow you to borrow all kinds of tools instead of buying them for single uses. They also host DIY workshops, repair cafes to help you fix your stuff (for free), and offer their help to anyone and everyone. Just a bedrock of good people.
