I spent many late rainy evenings in our family wood shop crafting projects. Sometimes I would trade the scent of cedar for the aroma of freshly baked bread in my moms kitchen. The thick chewy slices of buttered sourdough inspired me. Hours of work and a pile of wood shavings later, I created a small wooden knife as a gift for my mom. She posted it on her blog and before I knew it, requests for this French style blade came pouring in. That was ten years ago and was the launching point of what would eventually become my company, Zatoba. My goal is to connect with people who share my passion for creative expression. I want to craft the best tools for the best bakers.
