Stacks of pieces of furniture.

I feel like serendipity brought me here. I had no woodworking experience. I was a wildlife biologist, a high school and middle school teacher, and a stay-at-home dad. One day, I just decided that I wanted to work with wood. Maybe it was all those years of walking around in the forest.

There’s so much to learn here. After all these years, I feel like I’m still on my honeymoon. I look forward to coming to work every day and being part of it all. It’s really satisfying to build something that will last a long time.

“There’s harmony in our division of labor, from choosing the wood to applying the finish.”
