About the Instructor

Hi, my name is Eric Schneider. I am a native of Sacramento. After college with a degree in psychology, I went into commercial sales, made some money. Left sales to start a construction company. Owned a restaurant, lost some money. And when the housing market crashed, sold out and began pursuing my passion of restoring antiques. Now I repair and restore anything from watches and clocks to old radios and victrolas, to car parts and travel Trailers. I also make commissioned furniture and kinetic art pieces for designers and others.
