Rachel Duda took up woodworking in 2015 as a hobby but quickly escalated into a passion. She built her first dog crate in 2017 as a request for a family member. Soon after the request for designer dog crate furniture started piling in, however their then two-car sized garage wood shop didn't really support launching a business right away. Over the next couple years she steadily full-filled custom orders all by word of mouth. Each custom dog crate was improved until perfected.
