Gary Steven Smith, originally from Sumter, South Carolina, has been working with wood for over 30 years.  His experience includes: remodeling, decks, framing, trim, custom cabinets and custom designed wood products. What began as a temporary job in Jacksonville, Florida, to support a growing family, led to a life-long love of working with wood.  

Steve lived in Taiwan and the Azores in his youth as part of a military family. These cultural influences gave him a broad exposure to building design and craftsmanship.

As a business owner, Steve has developed sensitivity for other people’s taste and design. Now that the oldest son (of three boys) runs the family business in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area, Steve devotes his free time building handcrafted custom products.
