    Very inspiring ted talk. You sound like you went to business school and that clever application of product design and placement is genius :-)

    Thanks for the great talk! I love seeing creative people breaking the traditional business model and creating high quality "people to people" channels like you did. Thanks for all the great design ideas!

    Thanks from Hong Kong! although I have never made any of the furnitures (since we don't often have the space in HK), I find it enjoyable just to watch how furnitures (nice furnitures esp) are made from scratch.

    I watched your TEDx talk. The proliferation model is acceptable for technology. In fact, without it many great tech ideas die on the vine. However, it goes against almost everything taught in business school when it comes to manufacturing.

    I would just like to say that I don’t ‘follow’ most people. I simply do not get inspired very often. However, your message here is beautiful. I think we all owe a great deal of thanks to your mother. Out frigg’n standing. I’m a fan.

    Hello Ben. I have been following HomeMadeModern for a while now because of all the great, innovative, and aesthetically pleasing ideas. I had no clue of the backstory of how this channel came about. After seeing the TedX talk I was amazed. I applaud you sir, great work!

    dude, I loved your Ted talk! Honestly watching your videos have challenged me to start investing in tool sets just to have around the house in case I get a moment of inspiration to create something that can also be practical!! Keep up the good work bro!

    Hey Ben! Your TEDx Talk was fantastic and inspirational. Thank you so much for sharing it with us, as it's always nice to see and hear a little bit of behind-the-scenes from the maker/DIY community. I'd be very interested to hear more about your approach to the business side of things!

    Others will comment on the marketing, financial and business aspects of the presentation you did for TEDx. I (who had lots of ketchup sandwiches growing up) would like to THANK YOU for bringing your design and art to us so that we could wholesomely build the projects and also be inspired to create our own. We all learn from others but you go beyond that and inspire others! That is something to be proud of having accomplished in ones life! Have a great year in 2016.

    I like you even more now. Thanks for the inspiration. I may start making and sharing my multifunctional furniture designs with people, like you do. Not to make money, but to give people affordable alternatives.

    It's annoying that you walk from left to right during your talk. Anyway enjoy the talk and the info you present

    wow, I'm glad you made and shared this talk. It is very pertinent and helps understand your "style".
    Thanks for introducing me to concrete, and lifting a bareer here and a bareer there on my tiptoeing adventure towards flying off as a creative maker dad myself…
    Happy 2016 and keep on trucking !

    Hey Ben, I just "discovered" your channel the other day, and I'm enjoying binge watching the earlier videos. The TEDx talk was very cool. Keep up the awesome work.

    Hi Ben. I whatched your TEDx talk and it was quite interesting. I think your videos are great, the only thing that I find not being as great as your design ideas is the audio; it's not a disaster but it could be better. I hope not to sound rude because it's not my intention.
