Paul started this business before he was 22 years old! At the time, he had no idea where crafting hickory rocking chairs would take him and his family. Over the years, his hobby and side business has evolved in to so much more. It is how he and I put food on the table while raising three kids. It enabled us to travel as a family. It put one of our kids through college (and would have the other two had they chosen that path). It taught all three of them the value of hard work. It also fostered in them a love of woodworking, which is a legacy he continues to pass down.
Every "set back" is also an opportunity! When shows this year started canceling on us, Lexi (my daughter in law) and I started brainstorming ideas on how to get our furniture out there for the public to see, feel, and sit in! We talked about a few options, but hadn't really decided on anything, when she called me out of the blue a little panicked. Read more about a new business partnership and how it formed!
