Doug Lawson is a #maker
—a mold maker, welder, and tool technician.
Doug began his career at Matrix 4 in the mid-1980’s under Raymond Wenk Sr. He was a junior mold maker at the time and spent 12+ years at M4 honing his craft. We were thrilled to welcome him back in May of this year, bringing his experience in die-casting, welding, CNC, and mold maintenance. “Being a mold maker and technician is rewarding work. It’s challenging yet being able to reverse engineer something with no blueprints is very satisfying. It’s satisfying spending time figuring something out and overcoming unknowns and solving problems.” Doug shared.
As a maker, he gets to witness the work of his hands in the hands of the public in everyday life. He fondly recalls the tools and projects with @planofishing
Tackle Boxes, @mrcoffee
and other consumer products made on the M4 factory floor.
A true maker. #makersweek #makemeaningfully
