Jeff Estes, a Colorado native, moved to Nashville in 2010 to pursue a career in music. As a hobby with two workbenches and a handful of tools, he began building skateboards and furniture in his backyard for stress relief. Soon he realized that he found more joy in the craft of woodworking than music. Joining a local maker space, Jeff quickly befriended many of Nashville’s talented craftsmen and soon began collaborating with them on larger projects. It wasn’t long before 5 String Furniture was born. Taking full ownership in 2014, Jeff and his team have worked on well-known establishments all over Tennessee without losing site of their humble beginning.
