My Wife & Son & I , Manufacture Custom Signs & Handmade Wooden Crafts & Wood Stoves.
My son and I rebuild the wood stoves together.
We both have ADHD which is GOOD and EVEN BETTER !
: GOOD because we are always interested and excited about the next "SQUIRREL" AKA project we choose to tackle
: EVEN BETTER because we are both very detail / perfectionist oriented.
While we may hesitate to say our work is perfect , we take a lot of pride in what we do and if we see a flaw we fix it ! We don't hesitate to call each other out if things are missed or not good enough. It it all good natured fun here in the workshop , BUT ... seriously it has to be done right if we don't want to face each others scrutiny and be forced to wear the "cap of shame" . Oh it still happens now and then , but more often than not it hangs in the corner collecting dust as a gentle reminder to do things right the first time.
Wood Stoves are heavy , they are often neglected, abused, & abandoned as carrying fire wood fades in popularity. Our stoves are often rescued from residential homes, basements and garages, & far far from home but we dutifully go and get them out of respect for the service they have given to keep their families warm , and for the love of seeing them transformed back to their former glory.
The satisfaction that comes from knowing our finished product will be loved and enjoyed by a new family drives us in our quest to save these beloved family heirlooms and the cherished memories they carry.
We welcome the opportunity to add a little warmth to your home!
