“In moments of uncertainty, when you must choose between two paths, allowing yourself to be overcome by either the fear of failure or the dimly lit light of possibility, immerse yourself in the life you would be most proud to live.”—Adam Braun

SKW Woodworks


My co-worker (aka: husband) takes all my crazy ideas and cuts, glues, hammers and nails them together. Then I take it from there...staining, sanding, waxing, poly-ing, and even writing up the invoices and the thank you notes are part of the job. Social media marketing and customer relations. Project management.
It's a glorious roller coaster with many twists and unexpected turns, but this is one ride I never want to exit.


Farmhouse Flagship

To date, my favorite design and the flagship model of all SKW Woodworks projects. This is our best selling design and it's actually my own dining room table! I love game nights, dinners and even working at this is a timeless investment, paid out in dividends of precious memories.

"Many people search blindly for the 'meaning of life.' What they don't seem to understand is that life does not have meaning through mere existance or acquisition or fun. The meaning of life is inherent in the connections we make to others through honor and obligation." - Dr. Laura Schlessinger

The things I enjoy the most are training new employees to be successful in their job and being competitive with other Recruiters.

One of the best things about this company is their continual support of the Special Olympics, Toys for Tots and the sponsorship of many Angel Tree children.

My happy place

Telluride, Colorado. Spring 2015. I love the snow, cold weather, and snowboarding whenever and wherever I can, but this is by far my favorite place in America.

I dream that one day I will be neck deep in wood glue and saw dust! Honestly, I would trade my steady paying, 40 hour a week day job for 80 hours a week in my own woodworking shop. It matters to me that my work makes a difference...I don't want to just live and die without cause - I strive to make an impact and leave a positive impression fo...

Planked Console

It's really neat working on a project from molding an idea to the final delivery of the product...I loved working with this client to create something unique to her style. More photos on our Instagram & Facebook page!

Rustic L-Shaped Desk

This was our white whale...quite literally! One of the hardest projects we've ever tackled, but we overcame. I don't think I'll ever be able to get white paint off the floor of my garage...but it is completely worth it when we get to see a smile on a happy client's face. She was ecstatic! Thank you Amber for sharing your vision and letting us bring it to light!


The Barcelona Lofts

Assistant Manager

Managing a diverse property of over 300 units brings many different unique scenarios. I enjoyed the constant interaction with new people, the challenges and learning to negotiate leases.
Organizing enjoyable community events and helping plan the expansion of the property were among my favorite responsibilities.


'Tis the Season!

This is our first Christmas season as SKW, which means FUN HOLIDAY PROJECTS! I found the inspiration for these trees on Pinterest and we've had an amazing response for them.

C.A. Advertising, LLC

Social Media Manager

This was where I was introduced to social media management and the vast potential it has to impact a business and boost positive visibility to the public. Small start-up that was WAY before it's time with utilizing social media as a marketing strategy.
The base training I had here has become invaluable as I put it to use promoting my own company. Also, it was wonderful to work for a start-up and be an intricate part of the skeleton crew.
