Would Works design+builds 100 Custom Display Racks

We recently finished a custom commission for Two Tails Pet Company. These handsome display racks are being featured at pet stores across the country.

Would Works staff designed this sturdy plywood rack with a simple slot joint so it assembles easily without tools or fasteners and packs flat for economical shipping.

Workshop leader Krys (below) machined the 200+ parts needed for this order at Offerman Woodshop. Then Would Works artisans sanded, drilled, installed eye screws and packaged the order.  Nice work team!

Two Tails Pet Company owner Jonathan Berenson says:

"Working with Would Works was such a great experience. The whole team was so communicative, responsive to my needs, and guided me through the whole process. The product came out perfectly, on time and our retailers love it! It also gives me great pride as a small business owner to find partners that help us support our communities. We're so happy with the work and can't wait to make some more!"

This project created five days of sanding and assembly work for our May cohort of artisans.

Thanks Two Tails!
