Note from shop owner On 12-20-2019, my family and I lost our home in a fire. While the house did not burn down to the ground, the entirety of my tools were lost, as well as almost all of our belongings. After meeting with the property insurance adjuster, he determined the personal property to be a total loss. The current estimated turnaround time for my rebuild is at nine months, but this is without the structural adjusters input, which we will receive on Tuesday, 12-31-19. We have received a tremendous outpouring of support, and could not be more grateful for this amazing community that we belong to. It's not a matter of if I will be back, it's a matter of when. I will post updates to my Instagram and Facebook as I know more information, because I know by the outpouring that me and my family are cared for by a lot more people than I had ever imagined. Thank you again for everything these past three years, and I will be back to turning brushes as soon as I can!

    I have been living in the Wild West of Florence, Arizona, for ten years. When I'm not at my day job or the lathe, I'm spending time with my wife and two kids. Thanks for stopping by!
