Signs by Steve started as a hobby over the past few years, but it took on a whole new meaning during the pandemic. After spending 30 years in the fast-paced Business Equipment industry, I finally had the time to devote to myself and realized how much I missed working with my hands and woodworking. My craft became a silver lining. I had always loved taking pallets or scrap wood and turning it into something special. My father, who I also lost in 2020, was a hard-working carpenter. I grew up watching and learning from him in my early years in New York. During the pandemic, I did a lot of research (including lots of soul searching) and watched many how-to videos on woodworking projects including flags, welcome signs, and desks. I then set up a small workshop in my garage and got to work. As time passed, I gained more experience and positive feedback from family and friends, who I made various custom flags, signs, desks, iPad and telephone stands for. Before I knew it, curious neighbors passing by were requesting custom projects of their own too. Now, I have a brand that allows me to share my creative side and connect with others....and my past to my present. Signs by Steve is my brand, my silver lining.
