Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

About Me

My background

My name is Virgil. moved to East Tennessee area 1998, and absolutely love the way of life here in the mountain. My shop is located at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. You can just drive anywhere and see and view the history, history I do love. I got started in antiqu restoring, which I started wood working. I tore an old piece of barn wood for an antique restore. As I started working that piece of wood, I was amazed at its beauty and the history of the piece. Now I tear down entire barns and perseverance of every piece down to the rusty olde nails. 

How I got started

my oldest daughte came to me one day and said. "Dad look what I'm buying online for so-n-so." I said "Lydia I can make that better then what's online. So I did and it was so much better then what she almost bought. Then the next week she showed me a picture of another piece online. I built another piece better then that one as well. Then friends and family started asking me for items as well. Eventually I fell in love with creating and working with barnwood. Everyone that sees my work, especially the pieces of old dying piece or barnwood to the finished product, even amazes me every time. 

My style

i just build as the piece specks to me. I'll find a barn find or flea market find and build around it. Most the time as I sand and work the piece of barn wood I'll listen to it and see the final piece it wants to become. I can also do custom work to the customers family  heirloom, and build incorporating that piece
