The FLINTFACE WOODSHOP was created when all hope had seemed to be lost. I had just come off of a six week tour performing empowerment concerts for middle and high school students around the country. Simultaneously, we lost our label funding 2 weeks before Thanksgiving 2014. I walked up to our old barn with no heat in some beat reeboks and 2 pairs of jeans on to try and stay warm. I began cutting Christmas ornaments out of scraps of wood laying around. Not even having enough money for twine to hang them, I cut the strings off of my guitars and strung each ornament... We posted them on our band site and they began selling out. We barely got through that winter by requests for custom furniture pieces. With almost no prior woodworking experience, I learned as I built. Picking up a few boards at a time in my Prius, Beth and I built little home decor products we could carry to local flea markets in our tour van. By August 2015, we wholesaled our products to our first retailer. Long story short, 4 grocery store chains, over 40 retailers and growing daily the story's just begun! Hope is small and very hard to see but it's always there and usually found at the bottom.
