ABOUT THE OWNER

I started this business of mine in 2015, just a couple months before I turned 16 (yes, i'm still pretty young). Ive always been fascinated with being able to make money by selling things that I made. Whether it was duct tape wallets or lawn mower powered go-karts I had a passion for making things that others found worthy of purchasing
   The couple weeks of boredom that came after my snowboarding accident, resulting in a broken collar bone, is what caused the launch of my Etsy store. I wanted to make use of my time sitting around not being able to physically work on anything, so I brainstormed some ideas and started putting together an Etsy shop. Once i was able to move my arm, I made a few random home decor items, listed them on my account, launched my shop and patiently waited for my first sale. After countless times hearing the reassuring words, “you probably wont have your first sale for a few months” come from my mother, you could say we were both surprised when we saw the first sale notification pop up on my phone that night at the dinner table. 
   Five years later here here I am working my business full time! After balancing high school and my Etsy business, then pursuing a business degree at Colorado State University, I figured I would devote all of my time and effort into doing what I love most, woodworking. I moved back to Ventura California after finishing my freshman year in College, and since then, I've been working full time on growing and improving my woodworking business! I love making all kinds of custom pieces however my floating shelves are by far my best seller. I couldn’t be more thankful for the customers that Im so lucky to work with on a daily basis. I'm looking forward to working with you and creating that custom wooden piece you’ve been dreaming about!
