About Us

Kevin Schatz and Blase Lichtas are Nebraska natives with a passion for working with our hands. We are fathers and husbands first. Family by marriage, we Plainsmen have combined our experience and passion for woodworking to create one-of-a-kind products and services. 

We strive to give customers a Midwestern feel in their buying experience by working directly with them through the whole process of designing and building their custom creation. We want our customers to feel good about their locally made products.
