My name is Nick Endle, and I started Endle Home Goods in 2014. 

I grew up in a family full of craftspeople — my grandpa was a carpenter, and my dad spent countless nights and weekends in the garage and in grandpa's shop building crafts for my mom to sell at shows around the state and in her own retail shop in Fall Creek. I had great respect and admiration for what they were doing, and I spent lots of time helping — but I never had any ambition to be covered in sawdust all day working my hands to the bone like them.

That all changed in July 2014 when my dad helped me build a small workbench in the garage. I immediately fell in love with the process and couldn't believe how natural it felt — building something with my hands was so fulfilling and I had such a great time spending quality time with my old man. From that moment I immersed myself completely in woodworking, acquiring quite a few tools from my dad and grandpa’s shop, and started to build furniture pieces for my apartment as well as some custom work for family and friends.

Since then I’ve opened an online store and have been fortunate enough to ship my handmade products all over the world, sell my work at so many amazing local businesses, and I’ve connected with so many great people in my community. I love woodworking because of the joy (and challenge) that comes with making something by hand, as well as the infinite opportunities for artistic creativity with various wood species, colors, and grain.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years, especially my amazing family. I couldn’t do this without you!
