Eddie Hopps, President of Hopps Woodworks, grew up in Memphis, TN where he worked under the tutelage of his father AND his father-in-law, both skilled craftsmen. Initially, Eddie specialized in restoring and refinishing furniture including rare period pieces. By meticulously taking furniture apart, refinishing the components and putting it all back together again, Eddie learned quality construction methods.
Eddie earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Commercial Arts from the Memphis College of Arts. He spent 24 years in the field of graphic design and commercial art and established a successful graphic design business in Knoxville, TN. In 2006, Eddie decided to combine his design training with his woodworking skills and Hopps Woodworks was born. In 2009 he moved to a state-of-the-art, 5,000 square foot design and production facility.
