Jim Botkin has been in the woodworking business for over 40 years. He discovered his love of woodworking in his high school woodworking class, and has been in the industry ever since. After graduating from college, he went to work as a drafter, drawing parts for furniture. After that, he was a purchaser for several years before deciding his true passion lay in being a craftsman. He worked with several woodworking businesses, learning the craft, before setting out on his own a decade ago.
Originally from Southern California, Jim and his wife, Debbie, moved to Upstate South Carolina over two decades ago.
