A Hobby Born from Passing Down the Love of the Great Outdoors
The story of my hobby-turned-business began from a walk along the Spokane River with my then five year old son. On that walk, we came upon a nearly perfect, forked tree branch, which immediately sparked the idea to make it into a slingshot for him. As a boy, I had countless hours of fun with mine, and wanted to share the experience.
As I crafted his slingshot, I quickly discovered how much I enjoyed working with wood. In July of 2012 I opened my Etsy shop, at the time under a different name, selling wood burned signs and coasters. One day, the idea came to me to experiment with adding old fashioned slingshots to the mix. It wasn't long before my main focus had shifted to the slingshots, resulting in the name change to Slingshots by Riley. While I still enjoy working on various projects, such as signs, cribbage boards, etc., my specialty remains slingshots.
I am a big supporter of getting away and enjoying the great outdoors. This, along with a passion for my hobby and love for working with people, has made for the perfect business venture.
Around the web
Hello all. I am the owner of Slingshots by Riley, a small woodshop I run from my home in Spokane, WA. As a lifelong lover of hunting and fishing, my dad instilled in me a love for the great outdoors that I am set on passing on to my son as well.
