Carpentry is in Eli Phillips’ DNA. He worked with his father, who was an independent contractor working on small projects. Phillips had bigger goals and set out on his own.
Phillips knew that he had to start with the basics, get some education in the process and build up his career. It was a long process that’s been very worthwhile.
Eli Phillips recommends his career to any young person who likes working with their hand. He adds the intangible benefits keep him going.
