The Mind of the Maker: Chad Floyd


In a maker market that is mostly driven by artists striving to make a name for themselves, Chad Floyd of Chad Floyd Woodworks is finding motivation in a different place.

If we are being honest here, he doesn’t even like having his name in the title of the business.

In fact, honesty is what really defines Chad and his products. He doesn’t have time for fluff, and is not trying to corner any market with the next best thing. He just wants to create an environment where he can be truthful with himself and others, and make the products that he enjoys making while he’s at it. Although he oozes humility, he does not shy away from sharing his story when asked. He understands the importance of his experiences and how they brought him to where he is today.

While You Wait

Inspired by one of my very favorite blogs, A Continuous Lean, I’ve decided to create a type of post where I share groups of online articles and the like that I have recently found interesting. Some of these may be relevant to this blogs concept, and some not so much. This is simply something for you to enjoy in the times between my own posts. See links below image.
