About us

Hey there! My name is Gary Milstead and I am the owner/operator of Milstead's Woodshed. 

I was first exposed to woodworking through my dad when he would make wooden puzzles and toys for kids when I was little. My woodworking journey restarted out of necessity when I married my wife in 2016. When she wanted something that was too expensive, I was often tasked with making it! 

Milstead's Woodshed as a business was founded in 2020, first starting with the crafting of cutting board and eventually branching out to working a CNC. I have slowly started to specialize with laser engraved/laser cut gifts while also making woodworking products on demand.
