Store History

I spent my entire adult life working as a Graphic Designer, all along wishing I was making more with my hands. I always imagined I would be an architect when I was younger because I was nerdy enough to enjoy the math and science portion of school while also being really interested in art. Well, when college came around I decided instead to get a degree in Fine Art, with an emphasis in Photography from the University of California, Santa Barbara. After graduation, my wife and I ended up moving up to the Bay Area and I landed a job as a Graphic Designer for one of the many doomed dot-coms of the time. </br></br> Many years later, after working for a start-up or two, the amazing yet ill-fated Design Magazine-ONE, a small web company named Google, and with an extremely talented group of people at Factor Design, I found myself still yearning to make more tangible objects. So I decided to turn my garage into a wood shop and start building. With that, Knife & Saw was born.
