I got the idea for my business from a dream I had back in 2015. In it, I made a wooden cut-out of Oregon from various pieces of recycled wood. The day after I woke from the dream I collected the supplies to make one in real life and began creating. I posted my first finished Oregon cut-out on my personal Facebook page and the rest was history. I now make all states and various creations using recycled wood such as tables, coasters, bottle openers , etc. I strive to not only provide a living for myself, but also strive to raise money for local charities and people in need. In my first 2 years of Burnpile Design I have raised over $8000 for local charities and people in need. This is more than a source of income for me. This is my dream. This is my passion.
