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.
Another important note - crafting hickory rocking chairs was the first step in the development of our signature lumbar support dining chair design. You can see similar elements in the bent wood back slats, and support wraps.
