About Us

WELCOME TO RAISE THE BAR DESIGN

 

Hi there, I'm Chris! I’m an army combat veteran turned engineer living in Tampa, Florida.  Over the years I’ve designed and built several projects for myself and others including bars, bar carts, wine racks, kegerators, customized home furniture projects, and even garage breweries. 

 

My entire life has revolved around creating and building things. As the son of a carpenter, it’s in my blood.  As a child, I would spend hours playing with Legos and Erector sets.  

 

Growing up I learned woodworking from my dad and took welding classes in school. When I returned from Afghanistan in 2012, I went back to college to finish my engineering degree and got a corporate job.  

 

I worked for two large corporations over the course of four years. Unhappy with sitting behind a desk everyday, I rekindled my passion for building and creating things in my spare time. My friends and family supported me in starting my own company and in February 2018 I left my corporate job to pursue my passion full time. Life is so much more fulfilling when I get to experience the appreciation of the people who receive the pieces I've built.

 

I design and build metal and wood products for entertaining!  This includes bar carts, wine racks and other drinking accessories.  Check out my shop to "raise the bar" at your next get together! 

Thanks for checking out my site!
