About TFT Woodworking
TFTWood stands for The Family Tree WOODworking and truly represents us as a family. Our little branches are not only excellent helpers in the wood shop but our WHY! We strive to deliver functional pieces with a focus on wood. We love what we do and are blessed to do what we love!
We’re Tricia & Zach Tift and we are a Veteran owned and family operated woodworkers! We’re a dynamic duo – our master carpenter is an Active Duty service-member stationed locally and his other half is a mother of 4. We have two locations, Albuquerque, NM and the beautiful town of Eureka, MT.
We handcraft various kitchen gadgets, accessories and gifts with a focus on wood. Additionally, we LOVE making custom luxury furniture. With this passion comes a commitment to making heirloom quality pieces.
These days many marriages sadly end in divorce. Very few businesses last beyond the first five years. With all of the “wood stacked against them” Tricia and Zach from TFT Woodworking have been able to beat the odds with deep family roots that fostered lasting partnerships in both marriage and business.

It would almost seem as though the world does not need more coffee shops, but that is not the case. One of the most interesting things to emerge in the past decade is the idea that any kind of retail shop be opened with a specific purpose in mind. The story behind our favorite local haunts has become almost as important to us as what we buy itself, including our favorite magical bean. We can basically pick and choose retailers that reflect our own personalities and beliefs.
To that end, if you’ve ever wanted to learn more about coffee shops opened by and for U.S. military veterans, you’re going to love who we’re talking about within this episode!
