Shop Bio

In 1985 The Woodchest was created as a necessity and was operated out of our home for 6 years. We expanded into our present location and have operated and expanded our base of happy customers to well over 1500 returning customer. I feel older than dirt sometimes so my wife convinced me to take someone on to train in my skills and to maybe take over The Woodchest some day. Presently I am training a young family man and I am starting to get excited about doing a little more fishing. Anyhow that's me very appreciative of what skills I have been blessed with and looking forward to relaxing and making furniture and giving them away to my friends and relatives After I get the Honey Do list complete of coarse.
