Sean Harmer: Sean Harmer Woodworking
Welcome back to a brand new episode of the Woodpreneur Podcast. Today, your host Steve Larosiliere sits down with Sean Harmer from Sean Harmer Woodworking. Steve and Sean met at the Denver, Colorado, Woodpreneur meetup, and Sean is now bringing his knowledge and expertise to the Woodpreneur Podcast.
Sean is coming up on the five-year anniversary of his woodworking journey. Like many other woodworkers, Sean gets a great deal of inspiration from his parents. Both his father and mother were artists and creators, and they have passed on that passion to Sean.
“In 2018, I was working at a startup in Boulder, kind of like a commercial real estate thing, until I got laid off. So I took some of that severance money and invested in some tools and a CNC machine, and I wanted to expand it to like a whole new thing; I wanted to be creative.
Fast forward a couple of years, the pandemic hit in 2020. At that point, I was a couple of months into having a little boy, and I still wasn’t working and was having a hard time finding a job. I looked around at my friends and the opportunities they were looking for, which led me to create my company, Hardwood Climbing, where I made hang boards, which are like a training board that you mount above your door for rock climbers.”
