100 years. That's how old my grandfather (we called him Papa) would have been today. He was an incredible mentor, father, grandpa, husband, and teacher. He was a project manager by profession, but spent his retired years, and many nights and weekend while he was working, making things. He designed and handcrafted small furniture, created odds and ends that had specific uses, and even built a log cabin that we called, "The Creek."
He passed away just over 5 years ago, but he has lived on in so many ways because of the positive impact that he had on the lives of those who knew him. He also passed along many of the tools that he used to me.
I've learned a lot from him, and from others about how to use these tools to create things for other people. My hope is that the joy I have building handmade reclaimed wood furniture and home decor with Papa's tools is passed along to you, my current and future customers. 2017 is going to be a great year!
