Danny Jackson, Partner & CEO
From the time he cut out his first pinewood derby car a few decades ago, Danny has had a love for woodworking. He turned his passion into a career in 1998 when he founded Vine & Branches Fine Woodworks. Since that time he has continued to hone his craft as an artisan, innovator and entrepreneur. In 2014 he earned a US Patent for a design and method of manufacturing and has other patents pending for the same. After surviving a near-deadly motorcycle crash in 2016, Danny’s renewed sense of purpose has fueled unprecedented growth both in his personal life and in his profession. He sees every day as a new opportunity to fulfill his life mission statement: Make God look good. He does that by making sure that everything that bears the company name would make God smile. He loves his wife of nearly 25 years more than ever before and enjoys hunting and fishing.
