A Little Bit About Us
Waylight Creations was started back in early 2014, first as an Etsy shop. The initial venture was spawned from Amy’s (my wife) and my (Ryan) love of creating things; any THINGS. We quickly realized that our passion for creation wasn’t in sales and marketing, but rather in just the creation process. We rode out the Etsy shop and our local craft sales until about the Spring of 2015.
What We Do
A lot of what we do is based on learning on the fly, but much of it also comes from past experiences. I grew up the son of a skilled woodworker and contractor. I had little interest in skilled woodworking as a child and teen, but learned a lot from just being present in a shop most of my life and my dad teaching me how to use different tools. I quickly fell in love with woodworking, however, as an adult. I have always been a tinkerer at heart, like most kids; tearing things apart and putting them back together, modifying bicycles and building ridiculous contraptions out of scrap wood that was left in my dad’s shop. Basically if something looked fun or interesting, I wanted to try it, and often times that applies to me as an adult as well.
Why We Do It
There are many reasons why we decided to share what we make on our website and places like YouTube. The two main reasons are; (1) to inspire others, and (2) to maybe share a little bit of knowledge that we’ve picked up along the way.
