Our Story

Woodworking began as a childhood hobby. In middle school, once a week, my mom would drive me to the next town over to learn from a family friend, George. I built birdhouses, a toolbox, and many other projects in his shop and my initial skills and love for the craft formed.


As I got older, I lost touch with this passion, playing hockey competitively, going to college, and focusing on a career in the corporate world. During the early parts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the passion was rediscovered while remodeling a bedroom to serve as a home office – new paint, trim, a custom closet organizer, and wooden floors. With the passion re-lit and my competitive hockey playing days well behind me, I started building the first workshop in my basement and amassing some tools. The hobby quickly became one of my biggest passions again, making gifts for family and friends which led to friends asking me make pieces for them. Hoffer Woodworking was born.
