In May of 2019, Matthew graduated with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts with a concentration in Fine Woodworking from Tennessee Technological University. In high school he pursued his passion of hands on things by wood turning and working in a mechanic shop. That is what drove him to the engineering and woodworking programs at TTU. After working in a cabinet shop for a summer he found his true passion was woodworking. Matthew spent his college career making furniture with a focus of the joinery telling a story, which is a main drive for what brought him to Homestead Timber Frames. “At Homestead we cut everything by hand and then sign it. We take pride in what we do and signing it makes everything we do personal.” When he’s not at work you can find Matthew in a cave system or on a trail enjoying the incredible designs in nature.
