I used to be part of a local makerspace where I loved using the large (expensive) laser machines. It closed a couple years ago and left my kids and I heartbroken, we loved going there and making things together.

My business started out making custom gifts for friends, which quickly spread on social media and became an almost side business, shipping custom gifts and goods throughout the country.
I really enjoy making custom items that represent my home state of Michigan. I designed and cut a multi-layer map out of multiple pieces of plywood so that the Great Lakes had a depth to them when assembled. I then placed this into a shadowbox and engraved the state motto on the glass on the front of the shadowbox. It's been a hit!
