5 Woodworking Small Businesses to Shop from this Holiday Season

The Forest 2 Home community is made up of incredibly talented woodworkers! Whether they are cutting board makers, furniture builders, home remodelers, toy maker's or doing a little bit of everything, we are fortunate to see new, beautiful #BuiltWithF2H projects from the F2H community everyday. As our community is comprised of makers of all kinds-hobbyists and professionals alike-we wanted to highlight some of our small business makers before the holiday season!

Hi, I'm Jan! I love to make things for others, improvise & learn new crafts! I enjoy using my God-given talents for wood, art, sewing and design. I've been making things for years, but only for my family or to give as gifts. I recently opened a small business to start selling the things I enjoy making. 

Check out my past & present projects on Instagram and products for sale on Etsy.

My name is Blake Huseman-I am a believer, husband, father, woodworker, and fireman. I started woodworking back in 2018, right before my wife and I got married. We were looking to buy new bedroom furniture for our apartment but once we realized how expensive it was, I decided to take it upon myself and make our bed frame and refinish my great grandmother's dresser instead! Man, did I get hooked! Ever since then, my passion for woodworking has grown incredibly. 

I now own Huse Woodworking LLC, which is m side business, that I started in 2019. I operate my business out of my 18' x 18' garage in the Northern Illinois area. I have also been a fireman for the last 9 years and teach for the Illinois Fire Service Institute. Check out my Instagram page and Facebook  page to see my progression from when I first started until now! Have a blessed day!

Hello, my name is Kyle Glueckert and I would love for you to get to know a little about myself and KTG Custom Woodwork. I am blessed with a beautiful, amazing wife, Shannon, and my two sons, Kaleb and Tobias. I have been in the construction field and carpentry as far back as I was able to swing a hammer and that has brought me into one of the best and coolest jobs-I get to build sets for television and movies. Having to be part of and belong to one of the best, strongest unions that is international gives me so much pride and performance which is shown through my work. 

I started KTG Woodworking in the basement of our home, creating custom cutting boards as a hobby. One day, my wife Shannon asked me to make a charcuterie board as a thank you gift for a co-worker and then a few more for our family as gifts. The reactions we have received and the comments on how beautiful the boards were inspired us to see where this new adventure would take us.
