Business Name: PopOliMac Creations
Business Category: Handmade furniture and home decor
Founding Year: 2011 
What makes your company unique? My furniture and house decor are made freehand with a few basic tools, and though I love the rustic look but still want that polished quirky production, colour is most important to me though comes second to durability and using the best possible hardware so that it last a life time. I make no plans or templates for my firsts of anything and if I'm happy with it then I'll make a template, no two items will ever be identical and I will vary the designs each time an idea pops into my head. 
What do you love most about your company? I love the choice of colour and finish. The customers I deal with have the same ideas as me and want something quirky and bright, that is not to say that sometimes I enjoy the natural look of wood and am often drawn to make something for the sheer beauty of the grain.
Tells us a little about your process: I start with a pile of new and recycled wood, sometimes I even pay more for recycled wood as it comes aged and rustic. I then get my jigsaw and use it as if it were a pencil and start cutting, for furniture it has to be more structured and I make a rough sketch then proceed to cutting all the pieces, it doesn't work every time, often having to come back to it time and time again till I finally crack it. Then I have a process of deciding how much paint I want it to have, how shabby it should be and what the final finish should entail, my favourites being antique wax and Lacquer. I could go on babbling forever, creating for me is a way of life ... Art for art sake :)
