The story of how Smoky Grove came to be is long and involved, filled with sadness, joy, despair and triumphs galore. Truly, it is an epic tale for the ages. However your time with me is brief so I will give you the short, short version.
Smoky Grove was once a larger family business with a different name in another place and time. After the sudden death of my father, my mother joined me in Columbus, Ohio to regroup and start fresh on a new chapter of life. With new beginnings came new challenges and hurdles to overcome, and after 2 years living in Columbus it was time to move on to our new home in Toledo!
At Smoky Grove we strive to leave the world more beautiful than we found it. Designing, wood burning, and painting wooden housewares and furniture has become a passion of ours. We enjoy the challenge of brainstorming new and unique designs for our items, we work with customers to create truly magnificent custom work, and we hope to share our love of art with you!
