Lucktone Woodshop: From a Desk Job to Making Custom Furniture in Austin, Texas | Britton Byfield

Britton was unsure he wanted to continue his job in digital media. And then came his biggest blessing in disguise: he was laid off.

He started making cutting boards as a way to make money over the holidays, and that slowly evolved to him crafting beautiful custom wood furniture, cabinets, and more.

How was Britton’s family crucial to his transition? How did he handle the fear and anxiety that came with making a leap into the unknown?

All of this and more in today’s episode.

You can find Britton’s work at http://lucktonewoodshop.com/
