How did you get started in your business?
Hands 4 Building originated as a summer enrichment program in Gainesville, Florida which ran for 21 years. Family designed, owned and operated, we offered kids and teens the opportunity to spend a week using real materials, real tools and real blueprints to create model products from scratch during a two week summer camp. Hands 4 Building has scaled the program down, put it in a box and made it available to kids, teens and families to enjoy a woodworking experience in their own home.
Who’s your biggest fan?
Those that love craft making and value project based experiences!
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
Unlike manufactured kits with snap together plastic parts and pieces, our customers love using real materials, real plans and real tools to measure and cut every piece for their model project. The wood included with each project is sustainable basswood. Your completed project will last for years!
