We have years of experience in design and mechanics that allow us to come up with ultra creative ideas and solutions. Both of us are available by email, phone, text, video chat, etc to work through product ideas.


We do assist with drafting whether it be through rough sketching in the idea phase to 3D modeling in SketchUp and other programs. We strive to make sure the customer's idea is fully rendered to ensure our prototypes are as accurate as possible. As a previous IT Project Manager and System Administrator we utilize the most current technology to communicate designs and ideas.


We have multiple local lumber yards that we partner with to provide sustainably sourced wood materials for all of our projects. We also have a close partner that sources all of their lumber from naturally fallen Chicago trees which have a rich history in a fantastic city.


We are more than willing to create samples and prototypes to ensure both parties are on the same page after the design phase. Once the sample is created we can ship it out and conference via video chat or meet locally to review any changes that need to be made.


We can assist with determining the best methods of production and how we envision an efficient manufacturing process. Both owners bring to the table years of experience in manufacturing and furniture building.


We are able to produce large orders of products up to a certain amount based on current project load. Please contact us to discuss further.
