Hi, I’m George of byGeorge901.
They say if you do what you love, you'll never work another day in your life. I love woodworking. Several years ago I made some Christmas gifts and posted pictures on Facebook. To my surprise, several people commented that they would like to buy these items. My business was born!
In 2016, I left the corporate world after 28 years as a computer geek to become the chief sawdust officer of my own business. Since then, woodworking has been my full-time work.
As I built my small business, I worked on honing my skills, mastering attention to detail, and focusing on producing high quality products. If you love what you do, you want to do it well.
By 2020 my business had grown to the point that I added some new tools to my shop, enabling me to expand my product offerings. Having a couple of CNC machines and a large laser allowed me to combine my years of computer experience with my love of woodworking. Most pieces are my original design. Every piece is hand sanded and hand rubbed with eco-friendly oils and waxes. Food-safe products are used on all trays that may hold food.
I derive tremendous satisfaction from working with a client to realize their vision, and I am grateful for every repeat customer. Every piece I create has a story. I made a drop-leaf table from the wood of a walnut tree that my client played under as a child. Imagine my delight when his siblings requested another one for the home on the family farm. I have created large wall emblems for several local firehouses, a wall plaque for the Mayor of Shelby County, numerous plaques for retiring police officers, and several logo signs for local businesses. One especially rewarding project was to design and produce several hundred Christmas ornaments for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital gift shop.
Woodworking affords me the opportunity to provide my clients with a level of quality that can only come from something handmade. From hand selecting the wood to hand finishing each product, great attention is paid to every step. In a world full of mass production, a unique creation is increasingly rare. I personally create each piece I offer.
Please reach out if you have questions or need a customization not listed. Your purchase is something I create just for you. I want it to be exactly what you want.
I look forward to working with you.
