In this episode, host Ethan Abramson sits down with Tyreik Jackson, owner of the Hudson Valley, NY based company The Fixer LLC. Furniture maker, renovator, family man—Jackson is all those things, but not always in that order.
Jackson has six years of formal training in woodworking and carpentry through high school and college. When he decided to start his own company, Jackson had been working in the building trades for over 20 years. He knew he had the skills but he also knew that if he was going to do his own thing, then he was going to do it on his own terms.
Since you can build anything custom for your clients, why not also custom build a business for yourself?Follow along as we talk about the current rising respect for working with your hands, why it is important to learn from others, to give that knowledge back, balancing life and work, and much more.
In each edition of IWF Network News, Building a Furniture Brand host Ethan Abramson talks to your favorite furniture makers and woodworking professionals to give you a look at the business behind the furniture and cabinetry business.
You can meet Ethan Abramson and some of the woodworkers featured in his podcast at the IWF Woodworking Influencers Lounge, sponsored by Shaper Tools, in Hall A Booth A10620, at IWF 2022.
