We are extremely excited to introduce the newest member of the California Home +Design blogging team, former ReadyMade Editor-in-Chief, Shoshana Berger.   Shoshana got her magazine chops at Wired in the pre-Facebook era, then went on to write for The New York Times, Spin, Salon, The San Francisco Chronicle, Business 2.0, Travel and Leisure, and Sunset. In 1999, she became an editorial director for Young & Rubicam’s Brand Futures division. She cofounded ReadyMade magazine in 2001 and served as its Editor-in-Chief for nine years. She is the coauthor of ReadyMade: How to Make Almost Everything (Crown, 2005), which was featured in the 2007 Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial. She has lectured and taught workshops at Stanford, the Dallas Museum of Art, IDEO, Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and in Clay Felker’s magazine program at UC Berkeley. We are thrilled to have Shoshana blogging for us weekly on  Check back Wednesdays for her chronicles of the California luxury DIY movement. So without further ado, here's her first piece on Berkeley-based custom furniture-maker, Thomas Wold.
