Jim Diederich

Jim is a husband and father of two with a passion for design, woodworking, and mathematics. He grew up working in his dads wood shop. He then received a degree in graphic design. Naturally, the laser was the perfect blend for graphics and wood. He also loves to teach, and share knowledge with others. When he is not on the laser, he can be found playing competitive pinball, playing music on his guitar, or relaxing at his cottage near a flowage. Hence why he named his company Caldron Falls Trading Co, where his cottage is.
