This Journey started with a boy in need of a safe loving family. A table opened the door and has led us down a path we never could have imagined.
We’re Meek and Brittany and we’re heading full steam into our fifth full time year running Redirected Wood Company! It’s been a crazy adventure so far and we’re excited for what the future holds. Let us tell you a little bit about how we got here…
We love Jesus and strive to love people the way he does. We’re not nearly as good at it as He is, but this desire to try to love and serve others well led us to begin opening our home to people that needed a safe place to stay shortly after we got married. In our first 10 years of marriage we invited 12 people into our home for extended periods of time. The ages ranged from 5 months old to 24 years old.
Working as licensed counselors we specialized in working with kids who had experienced trauma and neglect. We learned that one of the most important things these precious kids need to heal is a safe loving home. This led us pursue our first adoption in 2014.
Redirected Wood Company grew out of a fundraising event during our 3 years of delays in the adoption process. We built a table and some other things and friends hosted a silent auction fundraiser for us. The table sparked a bidding war and more requests for tables came rolling in. In June of 2017 we were finally able to bring our first child home from Ethiopia, a 13 year old boy. That’s right we skipped the diapers and jumped right into the teen years. It’s been crazy and hard and wonderful and full of more joys and challenges than we could have imagined. In the summer of 2019 we became foster parents and within a month had added 4 more precious kiddos to our family. With foster care we do not know how long they will be with us, but they will have a safe loving home for as long as they need it. This is our mission and our dream, to provide a safe loving home for vulnerable children. Selling our quality handcrafted furniture is how we hope to continue providing for this dream. We are so thankful to each of our customers that help us continue along this journey!
That’s why we do it, and here’s what we do. We use sustainably sourced materials to build quality custom furniture. We build fantastic tables. We create one of a kind live edge pieces, sliding barn doors, desks for office spaces, tables and bars for restaurants and more! Tables and large flat surfaces are our speciality. As we grow we hope to start on internship program for kids aging out of foster care.
