1Man1Garage, Etsy

1Man1Garage started with Marcus Williams, Nashville, and grew to a tiny team, encompassing rescue dog Ellie, a source of playfulness and inspiration, and Sj Stone who takes care of gift wrapping, packaging and comes up with whimsical designs.

Marcus Williams worked at an engraving company that utilized new laser-technology to customize gifts. The happiness on the customer’s faces made him come with new ideas and start his own shop in a garage called 1Man1Garage. He keeps a sketchbook nearby to write down his ideas, before designing blue prints on a computer and transforming them to 3D wood miniatures.

The 1Man1Garage wood kits are made for outdoor gardens and need to be coated with protective paint or spray. These creative wood kits are interesting gifts. You can find a guideline how to assembly the kits on their site: 1Man1Garage Support

The Japanese cat in Zen Garden is adorable!
