Kristi and Matt Hoffmaster’s mutual love for beer, wine and Southern culture culminated in the company's 2013 founding in Charlotte, North Carolina. Together the married couple creates beautiful handcrafted folding wine tables, beer caddies, laser-engraved wooden coasters, balancing wine bottle holders and other specialty wood-worked items for your home.
To create the popular handcrafted items, Matt uses graph paper to sketch out a prototype plan that involves variations of whatever idea has come to mind. “We try to automate our processes as much as possible for two sets of hands,” Kristi explained. “We have a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine and a laser that has made some of the cutting processes even faster in the last year or so. We use table saws and band saws, lathes and sand, and we stain by hand.”
Originally from New York, Matt’s lifelong woodworking skills are apparent in Hoffmaster Woodworks’ pieces, which are both stunning and creative. Using pinewood and plywood from the South and elsewhere, he and Kristi (a South Carolina native) incorporate Southern flair into their works and achieve remarkably unique results.
