For years I worked for other companies building everything from watches and clocks to 300 ft. tall wind towers. I've had many jobs over the years working in many diverse industries and with many different processes. Each job more frustrating than the last. I could never find that peace and enjoyment I wanted in my work. Fortunately I had my little work shop in the back yard where I could escape and make things in wood. I called on my experience in the different industries I worked in and used that to make interesting projects in wood and metal, but mostly wood. Finally after a day of extreme frustration with my job, I said, enough is enough. Everyone has told me I should do my work full time so I said, it's now or never and I walked out of the job and never looked back.
I've been doing this full time for 10 years now and it has continued to grow beyond my expectations. We moved from my little 400 square ft. shop to our current 3600 sq. ft. shop and we have acquired several new machines to help in our process and best of all we haven't had to borrow a dime to do it. I've put my experience from the jobs I've had over the years to use in my new adventure and we have hundreds of ideas yet to come. We continue to grow and develop and expand and in the process we hope we have made a lot of people happy with our products.
You know that old saying, if you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life and it is so true, I absolutely love what I do and I look forward to coming in each day. A good deal of the credit goes to my Etsy customers without whom I would not be where I am today. Thank you.
