Hi, my name is Brad! I developed a passion for woodworking over 20 years ago and have since really enjoyed creating custom items for friends and family. Until recently, woodworking had always been more of a hobby but now I hope to help people and businesses with custom woodworking projects that are enjoyed and appreciated for years to come. Here at Against The Grain Woodshop, there is no project too big or too small and I will do my absolute best to bring your idea to life! 


Let’s start the conversation. Together, we can begin the process of turning your idea into a reality.
