Many things over the years led me to create Rustic Elements, some of which really go back to my childhood. I was always the kid that tinkered with things, took them, broke them, tried fixing them, or just made something new. It seems I was just wired that way, as the desire never ceases. It’s no surprise I stayed in fields that filled that need. Early on, I spent a good deal of time in metal fabrication and then moved into home construction.


After getting out of school, I worked for several big home builders supervising projects. During this time I was also remodeling my home. I ended up taking down a few walls and creating an area for a large dining table. My first reaction was to shop around the traditional big box stores for a table, and to my surprise, the price vs. quality just didn’t add up. So I embarked on the task of making my own solid wood table.


I didn’t think much of it at first until I started getting feedback. I remember my older sister sitting at the table just looking at it and she looked up at me with this slight look of disbelief and stated that I needed to try selling these tables. The rest, as they say, is history and we’ve grown into a fine-tuned shop that I can confidently say builds some of the best tables on the market.
