My earliest memories of woodworking come from our Grandfather’s shop in northern Indiana. Nestled outside a little town the workshop was perfect for clients to stop by and see the quality work as he and his team assembled and crafted the most amazing wood products. His white hair and long beard gave him an aura of wisdom and experience second to none. I was fascinated by all the different shapes, sizes and and the smells of sawn lumber. I would touch the wood and marvel at the smoothness of the finely sanded surfaces.
Grandpa taught my Dad the skill and I watched as he crafted furniture, built additions, remodeled homes and trimmed out entire rooms with the amazing (attention to detail) that can only be expected from well-trained hands. That fascination never left me and when I had the opportunity to team up with my brother Jeremy to design and craft our own unique products I couldn’t think of a better way to pass on what we learned to future generations.
Jeremy and I were born and raised Amish. We learned firsthand how to work hard on the farm, driving horses, milking cows and playing softball with neighbor kids. It was the the family traditions and values, (and let’s not forget the AMAZING food) that made us who we are today.
Woodworking seems to be becoming more and more a lost art these days . Our goal is to take what we have learned and apply it to every project we take on. To work with excellence and craft something that our clients will value and use for many years to come…and to pass down to our children what was passed down to us…Quality, value, integrity and to go the extra mile to bring a smile to someone’s face.
