From A Hobby To Manufacturing In 1 Year – Part 1



The journey of going from a hobby, to business, to building a manufacturing type wood shop in 1 year here in Alaska. This is more than a shop tour, this is the building of a shop and a business from day 1. A documentary of sorts.

Sorry its been so long since I made a video! A lot more to come now that we are up and running.

Production of this shop consists of cutting boards, butcher blocks, tables, countertops and more.

Dec 27 2020- The video that set things in motion to go from a once a year hobby batch of boards in my tiny shop.

We started producing product in the new shop early Dec 2021

The two videos that solidified going from a hobby to business to now having the facility and customer base that we have now. Part 1 and 2
