Happy Saturday to my IG family. Over the recent weeks I've gained many followers in the wood world and interior design world so I thought I'd introduce myself. 👋🏼 I'm David and this is my lovely lady, Laura. I'm a one man wood working shop out of small Midtown Atlanta basement. I've been making wood goods for about 18 months now. My first plan was like many, I wanted to build myself a dinning table. Today we still use the table and it gets more than just ate at. Laura uses it for a work table for her businesses, @jerseypeachdesigns & @lularoelauracarrozza and it makes me happy to watch her businesses grow.
I love making products for people. Each item I hand pick the lumber and 100% done by me. Someday I will have help but until then I'll keep hustling away. I have found my purpose in life and I'm on hot pursuit of it. I do however have a great day job that helps support us and it's lead me to meet some amazing people in the Atlanta area. My colleagues and manager are some of the best support. They know my passions and we love to talk business and Woodworking. My biggest supporter is Laura. Laura is the one who pushed me to leave a great paying job to pursue what I want. If it wasn't for baby girl I probably would still be in the shell of a complacent job.
If you've read to this point of this post and thinking you should pursue what makes you happy, you really should do it. It's scary. It's stressful. But a bad day in my basement shop is better than any day at a job you're just doing for money. I've met a ton of Instagram wood workers all just like myself and this world has some amazing supportive people. Surround yourself with like minding individuals and push yourself to make the best product you can.
Okay, that's all I have for this great Saturday! If you're in your shop today enjoy it! Build something amazing and tell your supporters, thank you. Thank you to all that support me, like my photos, DM me and even the few who comment. I appreciate it! Above all, Thank you Laura for pushing me to be the best woodworker I can be. I love you.
