Our Customers.  Cool one here - We sold three pieces of Gym Floor to Zach who works in the corporate office at Carhartt. Big, big clothing retailer as I’m sure you know. He came across our website while looking for ways to “repurpose” wood into an office desk. So three employees in the corporate building will be using our wood to make desks. Pretty cool!  Zach, We appreciate your business!
