Supporting Maine Makers while providing a hand up to Mainers in temporary need.
We are a family owned and operated business located deep in the woods of Western Maine. I live on the outskirts of a little town called Carthage, there are only about 500 of us in the town. My wife and I built our house and I built the cabinets and some of the furniture for our new house. I am a self-taught woodturner and I started turning in the early spring of 2000. It all started because I wanted to make a set of bunk beds for our daughters. I had to teach myself how to use a wood lathe in order to turn the legs and spindles for the beds. People liked what I was making and our business was born. Fast forward to January 2007 and it was time for me to leave my steady job and take the plunge into full-time starving artisan.
