Hello Beautiful People!
With very humble beginnings, just 4 months ago, I started a wood working company called WDWRK | Small Wares Co. I would have never been able to predict where it has led me and where it is headed.
I believe in doing things the right way, with hard work, and NOT in acquiring personal debt when starting a new business. Work with what you have! So with just a few tools I began making handmade spoons and everyday useable items that were done using old fashioned methods.
Through the growth of my business, I have simply outgrown many of the simple tools I have acquired along the way that have got me to this point. In order to take the next step and produce even better work, I will make a purchase of a new band saw and a few other small hand tools that will help me produce with greater speed and accuracy. Through these small upgrades I can make greater number of products available and work with retail stores in providing my goods in their stores.
Already, people are enjoying my pieces and I have been fortunate to send them all over the world. This Summer I plan on attending local and regional craft fairs and festivals and showing my pieces in a public space for the first time.
I have never in my life enjoyed so much connecting with people over things so simple as hand made goods. Join me in this story and help continue the conversation of hand made craft and quality made goods.
Also If you are interested, I currently have a variety of items available in my online Shop.
I deeply grateful for you, and appreciate your continued support.
You Rock!! Thank you so much!!

Risks and challenges
What an awesome challenge to craft handmade goods for you! I have been working and finishing wooden goods since I was young lad. Always a deep fascination with the creation of these small objects. There are no immediate risks to fulfillment on this project that would hinder deadlines or delivery. Sweet!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
