I love this Trunk Show for 2 main reasons. 1. Avery has a genuine talent and passion for his craft, which isn’t always the easiest thing to find. 2. I love woodworking. One of my favorite things to do is go out in the garage with a new idea, some wood and nothing to do the rest of the day.
Purchasing a piece of furniture can either be something you love or you hate, and we feel that a big factor in that is the story and experience behind the piece. You are more apt to love something if it’s personal to you, obviously, and Avery does a great job at making each experience just that, tailored to the people he works with. There is an invaluable uniqueness when something is created especially for you, and we love that about his work.
Avery creates all types of furniture. Everything from beds to tables to cutting boards. He takes custom orders and will also recreate pieces from his portfolio. We have yet to see him not tackle a project too small or too big.
With all that being said, meet Avery Wright from Wright Woodworks! Below you’ll get a chance to learn a little more about him, his story, see some shots of his shop/recent work and enter for a chance to win 1 of 2 cutting boards in this months giveaway, located at the bottom of this post! You’ll also see some shots of him creating the boards he’s giving away.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and why you started Wright Woodworks.
I’m 18 years old and I currently play drums for a living. Somewhere in between learning how to play and traveling full time playing, my outlook shifted from seeing it as a fun hobby to a job. I never want to see playing drums as my “job,” so I started searching for something else to balance out my schedule with music and that “something” was woodworking. It was all for fun at first, but it slowly turned into a small business and I’ve just been going with it.
What inspiration led you to creating your pieces?
The feeling that comes with being able to look at something awesome and say “I made that” is unmatched.
Where can we buy your pieces and/or request custom orders?
Directly through my email email@example.com and eventually on my store (which is currently under construction) at wrightwoodshop.com. Make sure to check out my Instagram also because I’m constantly posting my work there.
What is your favorite thing about living in the South?
Nice people, the space, and the weather. Sweet tea is cool too, not to sound stereotypical.
For this months giveaway, Wright Woodworks is giving away 2 beautiful cutting boards, made out of walnut and maple wood! Enter through rafflecopter below!
