Crafting Memories with Mike Faber

At Custom Gifts and Memories, we’re more than just a woodworking and laser engraving business; we’re a testament to the power of craftsmanship, dedication, and the love of preserving memories. Our journey is led by our founder, Mike Faber, a true artisan who has transformed his lifelong passion for woodworking into a source of joy for our clients.

Mike's Story

From a young age, Mike found solace in the art of woodworking. A craft he lovingly embraced as a hobby quickly became a cornerstone of his life. For Mike, working with wood wasn’t just an art; it was therapy. It provided a sense of purpose and fulfillment during his time in law enforcement, and it continues to be a labor of love that he shares with the world today.
