Sung Kim’s father gave him his first skil saw when he was just seven years old. His mother provided him with modeling clay as a safer alternative not long after that. Sung’s grandfather-in-law, ship builder Dean Stevens, left him a coveted collection of hand tools decades later. These influences shaped his abilities as a woodworker, but his desire to create sound formed him into a Maker.
Sung Kim, his collection of instruments, and a very ambitious secret project will be at Maker Faire Bay Area, May 21 & 22. There you can hear Sung perform and bask in the intricate structures of his Sympathetic Cannon, The Si-Tarzan, and the Ox.
