Background--
I was born and raised in northern Kentucky. I was raised to be a creative, intelligent, and independent child. My father was the industrial arts teacher at the local high school. It was also my father who fostered me into the trade, mainly because i was always wanting to learn. Around the time i turned ten years old, he built an addition to our home and turned it into a shop. At this particular point his after school business was repairing antique furniture. So at that point i was exposed. I picked up refinishing first, which lead to repairs of furniture, which ultimately lead to the production of furniture. When I was nearing the end of high school i decided that engineering was route i was going to take in life. I attended U.K. for a year, and decided that their was a better way. Now 3 years after my U.K. experience i live in south Florida, work with my father and younger brother doing something that is fulfilling.

The company that we have created, services the Palm Beach Island and West Palm Beach area. Our expertise is in everything. We build commissioned pieces, we build a line of mirrored furniture, we lacquer, refinish, repair. You name it, we'll do it.
