Our Story

What Started It All

We are a father and his two sons. Elias (the first born), Leonidas (Leo for short, the youngest) and me, Alexander (the father). The dining room table we had was small and cheap, with a laminate wood looking sticker that was peeling from the edges. I wanted a REAL dining room where the whole family could eat at, make memories and would stand the test of time. That’s when I decided to just build one myself. I got the wood needed for the job and with the help of my good friend Robert, we built a dining room table. I had so much fun building it, and I felt very accomplished after as well.

At Elias’s 4th birthday party, a good family friend of ours Kathy, came to celebrate. She noticed the table we built and loved it. She said “I will give you money right now to build me a table”. I laughed, and didn’t take her all to serious. After all I didn’t have an incredible amount of free time as my full-time job in Buckhead took most of it. One day a few weeks later, I got fired from my job. Once I got home, I took the next couple of hours to calm down and reflect. I had to figure out what to do, what the next step was.

 

I laid in my hammock in my back yard by the creek to relax and do some thinking. All of a sudden, I thought of Kathy. So, I called her and asked if she still wanted that table built. She said yes, so I went over to her and her husbands house that night to get more details of what they were looking for. She wrote me a check to start the build and so I did. I had an amazing time building her table, and I took it extremely seriously.

Elias and Leo wanted to help so I let them sand the table, and help me distress it. It took me a little longer than I expected, but I had to make sure everything was perfect. They came to pick up the table and they loved it. It was a huge sigh of relief for me because I was really nervous, and didn’t know how they would react, or if they would even like it.

We put a lot of love and care into each and every build. From hand picking, and quality checking every piece of wood, to making sure the stain and clear coat comes out perfect. Everything is built in our garage in Cumming, Georgia, and nothing leaves unless it meets our high standards. So, let us build you and yours a table that will last a lifetime of memories.
