And More

What launched this entire enterprise was our teenage daughter, for whom I built a tree house when she was younger, suggesting "you should build your own" furniture, when I first looked at commissioning someone to build a wall partition for my office. She was right, of course. You know how someone gets a new dress, then that person wants new shoes to go with it? And if you have a new dress and shoes, well some jewelry, a new hairdo, and tickets to a show may be in order. So a wall partition led to tables, and then to signs, and nameplates. Well, there may very well be much "And More" in the months and years ahead. Dowel wall partitions, wainscoting, indeed complete dowel walling may add a very special touch to any room or office. Signage, such as the Art of Dowel® logo (a 5' long sign), can be crafted to accommodate virtually any message in print or cursive.
