"I've realized I'm addicted to those sports where I only have to make one decision–which is 'go'–and deal with the rest."

Whitney Phillips was kayaking wine bottles out of the Pitcher Inn’s flooded basement when Matt Groom got the idea to hire him to help repair the extensive damages to the historic building from Hurricane Irene in 2011.

Groom was a contractor, and the two men quickly gelled, eventually partnering up and forming their own operation. Always the type to play around during time off from construction projects, Phillips slapped a couple pairs of wheels on a rectangular plank, cast aside from one of their jobs. It was their first skateboard. Groom did some experimenting of his own, laminating exotic woods together to make intricate and stunning designs. Suddenly, the beautiful objects they had taken a risk to create for no one but themselves began making waves and winning them the contracts on higher paying and more artistic custom woodworking jobs.

 

The Collective Quarterly sat down with the two entrepreneurs in their workshop in Warren, Vermont, and discovered how deep their philosophy goes on wood, failure, and parenting.
