6/11/18: The ByGordonLiving Etsy shop has gone away, and I cannot find another website for Chad Gordon. So it’s safe to assume he is not selling online at this time.
Recycled Wine Barrel Furniture & Decor
Hello, I’m Chad Gordon, the owner of By Gordon Company. I guess you could say creating works of art with my hands is in my blood. I am a third generation creative craftsman and I have a passion for making artistic functional pieces that inspire and enhance both indoor and outdoor spaces. I grew up with an itch to tinker and create. If something was broken, I would fix it. I would help my grandfather and father work on projects around the house. I would spend hours on end gathering useless parts from things that were broken in order to transform them into something useful and unique.
For the past 10 years, I have enjoyed creating and crafting one-of-a-kind items and products out of both new and reclaimed materials as a hobby with the desire to some day turn my passion for creative craftsmanship into a successful business venture. I attended a California State University to earn a Business Degree and with my faith in Christ, and a little bit of passion, patience and perseverance I have cultivated the tools to turn my dream into a reality.
That day has come. I am building my hobby into a thriving business and I couldn’t be happier. I always used to hear the saying ‘You’ll never work a day in your life, if you do what you love’ but never understood it until now. I am fulfilling my life long dream. I reside along the beautiful coast of Central California with my amazing wife and two beautiful daughters. I couldn’t ask for anything more, I am one lucky guy.
