KQED, Little Paper Planes, and Needles and Pens have joined forces to create “Working Title”, a fun series of portraits of artist entrepreneurs in San Francisco.

This first episode features artist, and self-taught carpenter, Jay Nelson. He builds tree houses for a living, and he builds some other pretty amazing things too. Watch below!

    The designs remind me of the craft the kids create in the 1985 “Explorers” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089114). Could be some inspiration there, perhaps.
