Our team embodies a spirit of creativity and resilience. We defy norms and chart our own course. We've spent a decade so far, on this remarkable journey, where Old Glory 1 Woodworks not only builds exceptional products but also triumphs over challenges and continues to grow and innovate along the way.
Constructing a business, much like crafting a product, is a nuanced journey with its share of challenges. It's a process marked by twists and turns, rather than a linear path. Reflecting on our history, we set our sights on a future characterized by continuous growth and evolution in our upper cabinet storage solutions, with slide-out convenience.
UpperSlide: A decade of crafting upper cabinet storage solutions
Mike's passion for carpentry traces back to the time spent in his grandfather's garage. Within that space, surrounded by the aroma of fresh pine and the rhythmic hum of old tools, he discovered the subtle art of transforming challenges into solutions. Carpenters, he realized, are artists of a unique kind—crafting from canvases of wood, wielding saws instead of brushes, and adorned in sawdust rather than paint.
At the heart of UpperSlide lies the simplicity inherent in the art of woodwork—a spirit not forged in the crucible of a grand crisis, but rather shaped by the daily struggle against kitchen clutter and chaos. Our rhythmic daily dance with teetering containers served as the spark, kindling a revolution that unfolded, one smooth slide at a time. (read more)
A decade ago, Old Glory 1 Woodworks made its lasting impact, forming from an idea that took shape almost a full decade prior. This creative spark, cultivated nearly 20 years ago, eventually evolved into the foundation of Old Glory 1 Woodworks. It didn't originate as a company; instead, it blossomed as a response to the challenges of cluttered cabinets. We've all experienced the cabinet Jenga game, delicately opening the door, hoping to avoid an avalanche of storage containers. Mike recognized a need for change. Enough was enough.
