Lucas's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped improve my shop, improve my products and get those products into customer hands.
I grew up in Davison, a rural area outside of Flint. My grandfather was a hobbyist woodworker and as a child I would spend a lot of time in his workshop. My father is also a builder and carpenter. He built the house in which I grew up. Being around so many makers and trade workers my whole life has taught me the value of hard work and perseverance. Learning how to use woodworking tools at 10 years old had a deep and lasting impression on me. I love the way woodworking allows me to change a hard object like hardwood into smooth, comfortable, beautiful home furnishings. I also enjoy the fact that the methods I use allow my customers to feel confident that my products will last a lifetime. There is too little quality in the mass-produced furniture world today. I want to change that.
