When Collin Delia isn’t saving pucks, he’s saving money on goods by making them himself.
“One day I thought, ‘I could do that.’ I have the eye for that and I’m very detail-oriented so I bought some scrap leather and a starter tool kit and started messing around. Then I researched companies that make handmade leather goods. All of my stuff is hand-stitched. It’s pretty intensive. If you want something to last, you have to do it by hand. Machines can only do so much.”
Delia has even dived into woodworking, saying simply “I needed a couch, so I made a couch.”
He’s not the only one in his family that does woodworking as his dad, Nicholas Delia, has helped build furniture in their house. The younger Delia also said he built a TV and coffee stand.
