"I like to design unique pieces with a vintage aesthetic and the feel of something I would want in my own life. Hopefully, it will come across as something special and original that is made with care."

-Matt

I am a maker and apparently have been one all of my life. When I opened my shop, it was really a way for me to parlay a life-long habit of making stuff into a little business that I could really get excited about and channel some creativity. Little did I know that the real rush would be from the high-fives and inspiration from the good people here in the Etsy community and those that work so hard to provide it. Etsy has been life-changing for me and I am very grateful for it and all the amazing customers that entrust me to make things for the special people in their lives.

It just so happens that I am also very lucky to have a beautiful and supportive wife, two beautiful daughters, and a husky who is also beautiful. Without them, I wouldn't have been able to transition into enjoying my day making things in my shop listening to records while savoring the smell of freshly-cut hardwoods.

My design approach is pretty simple. I try to make cool art that is practical and can be useful in someone's life. I like genuine and authentic things with a hint of vintage nostalgia.

I really do get a kick out of making these things in my shop. They are all my personal pet projects and I hope that we can collaborate and make something together soon.
Best,

-Matt
