We are Kevin and Kelly Thompson, the husband and wife team behind Knotted & Corked. We grew up in the same small town just outside of Los Angeles, shared many of the same interests and ran around with the same group of friends. After college, we reconnected, started dating and soon found ourselves married together.
The vision for this company began when we bought our house and started decorating. With Kevin’s impressive tool collection and Kelly’s creativity, we began building furniture and shelving around our home. With Kevin’s dad as a carpenter, Kevin naturally picked up the skill sets of woodworking and building. Kelly has always been crafty, whether that be knitting/crocheting, refurbishing flea market furniture, ceramics or painting, she is always looking to see what she can do with what she has. Friends, family and neighbors started to see what we were capable of and suggested we start making things to sell. While flattered, Kelly laughed, due to both of us working full time jobs, so what soon became Knotted & Corked, seemed out of the question. With new toys (tools) magically appearing, Kelly finally decided, if Kevin wants to keep getting new tools, we are going to put them to good use and start this company.
