                                                                                                                                                              When I was young, my Dad gave me the nickname, "Slick Willy" because I was always getting into trouble, but somehow managed to talk myself out of it. The name stuck. Welcome to Slick Willy's Woodworking!
After losing a bunch of weight (about 100 pounds) when I was 19 years old, I went to school at Central Michigan University and became a fitness professional (personal trainer). After noticing lots of problems with equipment and with balance training in older adults, I engineered and invented a piece of fitness equipment called an ActivMotion Bar. This fitness product is now used across the globe in homes, fitness facilities, physical therapy clinics, and sports training centers.                                                                                                                                                          
For me, woodworking is just as much a form of therapy as it is fun and engaging. My true passion is building things - anything - that puts a smile on faces of others. I take great pride in my attention to detail and ability to provide great service to others, and am confident your experience with our company will be as positive as the tens of thousands of other customers I have served in the past.
