A Woodworker's Introduction
Hey Friends, my name is Danny and I am the co-owner of Charlie & Crew. I am Samantha's partner in crime, I am the Robin to her Batman. This is a new year, and we have done some amazing things in 2017, but we have some bigger things coming in 18. I want to take the time to introduce myself. A little over a year ago we launched our Home Collection, that day, that moment, my identity in this business was born. We launched @charlieandcrewdad on instagram and I felt like I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the long haul. I wanted to be an active owner and I wanted to do this business for my full time job. I have always been a supporting role in the business from the start, but our number 1 goal in 2018 is to get me in the position to be a full time voice in Charlie & Crew. Currently my "full time" job is a plant manager of a steel fabrication company, I have taken many things I have learned and built that knowledge into how I handle the day to day operations of Charlie & Crew. But enough of this side story, lets get to the matter at hand, why wood?
Growing up as a kid, my father was always out in the garage creating some master piece. Watching him take the time to study the craft, learn from mistakes, and take an idea from start to finish stuck with me. I believe it took me to get older to realize the woodworking bug was planted in my brain. There is a thrill in going to Lowe's, getting raw material, cramming it in my car (yes I said a car, Sentra in-fact, real men can haul wood in a car, lol), turning on my Kobalt miter saw and cutting some Pine. The art of making something that a client will place in their home is the ultimate reward. I love sitting down with Samantha and coming up with new designs and finishes. We have taken time and extreme consideration before launching a new product, making sure we can achieve the promise to every customer, that we will provide the best service and the best product.
I am so excited for 2018, I have received many nice compliments and words of encouragement from our customers and followers on Instagram. I hope to always deliver on the promise to be the best for our customers. I hope you will join me on my journey, and we hope that you will continue to follow and support Charlie & Crew. Stay Classy friends.
