Maria is co-owner, a former teacher and current woodworker. Maria was an elementary school teacher for six years until she began to pursue her passion in woodworking full time. Maria’s love for woodworking began when she was five years old. She followed her father around with plastic tools until she purchased her own set and has never stopped building! She has worked in design and construction with custom built furniture, and has a specialty in high-end antiques. You might be able to spot many of these pieces around town at your favorite local spots! Maria has Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Studies and a Master’s degree in Curriculum Development. Maria’s favorite hobby is hunting for “street treats”, discarded furniture to repair and refurbish!
