About Us

I first stumbled upon woodworking by accident. When I was in my mid 20s I bought a house that needed a TON of renovation. I didn't have much of a budget for outside work, so I knew I would have to do most of the renovation myself. I refinished the hardwood floors and replaced showers, toilets, drywall, tile, lighting, and so much more. Everything I did was just a means to an end until I started doing the trim carpentry throughout the home. I cut all of the trim for each room, tacked it in place, and for the first time, in all of the work that I had done in the home, I felt an immense sense of accomplishment.

From that point forward, I spent more and more time drawing designs and the sawdust saga began. My girlfriend and I quit our jobs to build our growing candle business in 2018 and I was getting increased traction with my furniture projects at the same time. Our 240 square foot candle studio turned into a miniature woodshop in the evenings when candlemaking was done for the day. As you can imagine, we realized very quickly that using the small space for both businesses wasn’t going to cut it. No pun intended. 

Eventually, I moved into my own shop and started my Etsy store. Since then I’ve made over 500 pieces of furniture for families across the U.S., and even a few in Canada and one in Japan.

Over the years, I’ve developed a passion for bringing the natural beauty of high character wood to life and making furniture that highlights the beauty created by nature. There’s just something about furniture that’s truly made by hand. From sourcing most of my wood from a local sawmill, to using high quality finishes and supplies, to identifying the details that matter and beyond, I’m a furniture builder who deeply cares about the craft of my work. Customers come to me when they’re looking for a piece of furniture that adds joy and function to their home, while still desiring the sophisticated feel of my designs. 

The most fulfilling part of owning Columbus Furniture Co. is getting to see my furniture in new spaces and hearing how customers cherish my work in their homes and businesses. I’m proud to consider myself a craftsman; The processes I use are more personalized, handmade and classically old-school compared to many other modern-day builders. “They just don’t make ‘em like they used to” has a truth to it, which is why I take so much time and effort to make high quality work by hand. I admire this style of craftsmanship from the builders of the early 20th century and it means so much to me to provide this experience for my customers. 

I’m thrilled to continue growing and providing more homes and businesses with beautiful, one-of-a-kind furniture. If you’re interested in working with me and my designs, or have an idea of your own, please reach out.
