Ethen Colvin - Owner of Designs By Laconic

Hey, I'm Ethen,  an imaginative maker who uses innovation to provide our clients superior service and craftsmanship. It is important to me to craft with passion, care, and attention to detail.

My passion for making started at a young age with my fascination to know how absolutely everything was made. I would take apart and put back together Anything I could get my hands on just to learn how it worked. Once summer came,  i spent my time in my grandfather's woodshop, learning and soaking in all of his old-style woodworking techniques. those techniques to this day still influence the quality, durability, and ingenuity of everything we build.

Being a self-taught maker has allowed me to explore each craft and fine-tune my skills with my own creative flair. I believe the best moments life can provide are meant to be crafted, and i take a lot of pride in ensuring each project is well taken care of to provide our clients with memorable moments.
