Taking a piece of wood and carving something meaningful out of it is a tradition many have forgotten.
But not Jordan Williams, the 18-year-old son of Jill and Stephen Williams.
Williams said when he first started Southern Woods he wasn’t thinking of turning it into a real business.
“I’ve only been doing this about five weeks,” he said. “My grandpa learned from his dad, and my dad learned from him and has made a few pens.”
Williams is currently making pens, iPad styles, wine toppers, letter openers and men’s razor, all out of wood or deer.
