Gwen and Tommy have been marriage and business partners for over 20 years. Tommy started building log furniture when Gwen asked him to make her a vanity table. It turned out so well that he turned their garage into a workshop and started designing and building log furniture. Since they didn't have a storefront for what would eventually become Rocky Top Log Furniture, they would sit on the corner of a busy intersection on weekends and sell his furniture out of their truck.

Today, Tommy and Gwen's company, Rocky Top Log Furniture, has over 50 employees and is the nation's largest manufacturer of northern white cedar log furniture and log railing. They also custom-build log homes, and their client list includes Disneyland, Six Flags, Knott's Berry Farm and the U.S. Army.
