One of the most satisfying aspects of this work is seeing a project come to life. It is amazing that you can take an idea and turn it into something real. Something that is going to be used every day for years to come.
This journey all started with me making a cedar strip canoe one winter over a college break. After reading a book about building a canoe, I felt inspired to make one myself. During the process of making that canoe in my parents garage I fell in love with building and creating something from scratch.
I went back to school but I couldn’t stop thinking about woodworking. I completed my studies, and started at a small town newspaper as a journalist. After a short and unhappy stint at the newspaper, I decided to pursue something that I was passionate about. So we took a chance and I started my woodwork career. I remember one of the first projects I did: It was a live edge shelving unit for some family friends. I must have made less than minimum wage on that project, but it was the start of my journey and I have learned so much since then.
This journey hasn’t just been about furniture either, I had the opportunity to work for a renovation company for a few years, where I learned so much about building, renovations, and carpentry. Now I am at the stage of my career where I don’t define myself as just a furniture maker. I have renovated entire houses, I have built kitchens, I have made custom furniture and even created my own furniture line. I take pride in my craft, from the very beginning to the very end of every project.
There are so many craftsmen out there that can create beautiful things. For me though, Its not just about the craft, its about building a relationship with my clients. Listening to them and helping them to bring their ideas to life. Its through those strong relationships that I have been able to build my business. I understand that my clients put a lot of trust and faith in me and I don’t take that for granted. I always aim to exceed their expectation. Seeing people smile when they see my work for the first time is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career.
I am incredibly grateful for everyone that has put their faith in me along the way. And I look forward to building and creating many more projects and relationships to come.
