Elevator Pitch:

Wake the Tree Furniture Co. is a small studio in Central Pennsylvania, devoted to handcrafting fine modern furniture.

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

All of our products are designed and handmade by Anthony, a second-generation woodworker who grew up helping his father in their family wood shop. In 2014, Anthony and wife Liz began Wake the Tree Furniture Co. to make fine, high-quality furniture by hand from sustainably-sourced local materials. Anthony is passionate about design, attention to detail and working with wood. He works one-on-one with our customers to bring them thoughtful pieces that fit their personal preferences and lifestyle.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

We started our business from scratch by building our shop set-up slowly and responsibly, creatively using the minimum equipment necessary to make each piece. The FedEx Small Business Grant would help us with upgrades on key pieces of equipment used to process rough lumber such as planers, saws and dust collection. This would make the build process easier and more efficient and in turn, would give Anthony more time to design and build new pieces.
