They get the work done!
Adam Koons - Owner
Adam's earliest experience in woodworking started at age 10, restoring an antique dresser as a 4-H project with his father. It was that experience that would influence Adam for many summers to come, and would eventually lead him to create Revival Woodworks.
At a young age, he learned the basic skills of woodworking. He learned that if you're going to do something, you need to do it right. His family gave him support and lessons to develop his skills and to find the potential in all things.
Growing up, it was a common occurrence to watch and follow his dad throughout the process of finding junk and fixing it up. He learned that he could go to antique stores or garage sales with his mom and find unique items to restore or re-purpose. He also picked up some valuable lessons in "haggling" and "negotiating" at a young age.
In addition to restoring furniture, Adam began building custom corn hole boards in high school. He found new challenges in finding clients and offering custom painted corn hole sets. This was his first taste of business success, paired with various achievements in county and state 4-H woodworking competitions.
After the loss of his father in college, it became a goal of Adam's to carry on a legacy and continue woodworking as a way to remember his father. At that time, Adam began restoring antique boats and using his woodworking skills to help others, just as his father had done.
Now the owner and designer for Revival Woodworks, Adam proudly develops all the pieces from idea through completion. It is his passion and mission to make things better and to "revive" the the old into new.
Mariah Koons - (Adam's Wife aka "The Boss")
She puts up with Adam's shenanigans and Craigslist adventures. Mariah helps drive our ideas and creative process. She puts that "woman's touch" on the final products and designs. Sometimes against her will, Mariah often plays the role of furniture mover on pickup and deliveries.
Mariah grew up far from power tools, but she is slowly learning the ropes from Adam. Although she mainly sticks to the Chop Saw, her valuable skills include hand-painting, testing furniture, and being Adam's most loving critic.
Tyler Berger - The Doer
His boat may be plastic, but he is one of the hardest workers around. Tyler, a bass fishermen by day, carpenter by other days, brings the muscle to tackle the biggest projects. He is ready to go when we tear down barns, and is there when we put them back up on walls, or wherever the project may go.
