GT MSE PhD student Matt West found a way to combine his woodworking craftsmanship with caring for the community
Matt West, like everyone else, had to pivot when COVID 19 came along. He decided to turn his childhood love of craftsmanship into something that not could help connect him with his new community but also contribute to combating the pandemic.
He started making custom-made garden signs "because lots of people are stuck at home and lots of people are doing gardening.”
In his short time as an East Point resident, West has found that with a little self-promotion via Facebook and the assistance of his DIY laser etcher, that he is bonding with his fellow Jefferson Parkers faster than anticipated.
He sells his custom-made garden signs along with several other handcrafted items at his online shop, West Design & Fabrication.
West said any garden sign purchased between now and June 1st, 2020 will have 10 percent of the proceeds donated to Atlanta Beats COVID. Also, if you live in the Atlanta area, he will personally deliver to your home to prevent shipping costs.
