My name is Justin and I started this business in 2013. Where I am and what I do now, is not anything I expected or planned when I first began this adventure.
A good friend of mine had his own metal shop with a gym equipment line and had purchased a CNC Plasma table. I was working for a rigging and fabrication shop, so after work and on my days off I learned the program and cut a few small signs to start out, selling them on Etsy. My wife's friend opened a cupcake store, so for her grand opening I decided to make an industrial wood and steel business sign with a style that I had been wanting to make for a while. After that sign, I listed it on Etsy and quickly got hired to make a couple larger signs in the same style for a company in South Carolina.
My wife and I already had a 2 year old daughter with a boy on the way, so I figured if I'm ever going to do anything on my own, I couldn't wait any longer. My friend with the CNC plasma cutter needed more room, and I needed to start somewhere, so we decided on splitting another shop space in the same building as his existing shop.
I thought I would be doing custom fabrication for companies building specialized stands and mezzanines, all that structural kind of stuff. I wasn't getting any sales in those areas, so I began to focus more on the Etsy and online sales area by creating products for people to buy easily. My wife mentioned steel table legs, so I started with my 3x2 "X" legs for my own office desk, and haven't looked back.
This evolved in to concentrating heavily on furniture (which was never even a thought in my head when I began), and opening an industrial handcrafted furniture store with everything I've created. Now I have a couple employees and am looking to expand with lots of things in motion...
