Our Story

Mark has always been a handy guy. In 2004 he set out to build his family a home and learned as he went, often reading how to build various aspects of the house in the book section at Home Depot or discussing whatever he was learning at the moment with friends who had also built houses.  Keep in mind this was before google and youtube radically changed the way we research any topic.

Through this process he learned to build stairs, all facets of carpentry, and how to lay wood flooring to meet the hopes of his architecturally astute wife (her words not his). While doing this work he realized his passion for creating something out of nothing with his own pair of hands.

It wasn’t until a close friend asked him to build the display cabinets for her cupcake shop that he had a chance to try his hand at concrete countertops, something he’d been thinking about for years.

Her plan for the shop had been a painted plywood countertop and he talked her into concrete. The countertops in her shop were commented on so frequently that he decided to try to create more and look into training in the craft.

Several years later, he is successfully fabricating beautiful one-of-a-kind custom pieces and enjoying each challenge it brings.
