Ernie Everitt is a Spokane business owner. Ernie created Built by Ernie, a company which sells the woodworking pieces that Ernie himself creates. Ernie got his start in 2015, when a severe windstorm destroyed his fence, and his insurance company stated they would drop his coverage if he did not fix it. Ernie set out to fix his fence, as he has a strong passion for woodworking. Upon completing his fence, Ernie realized that he had tons of extra, perfectly good bits of wood that he did not want to throw out. With these scraps, he had the revelation to combine his creative side with his passion for woodworking, and starting making pieces to sell. Check out for more information.
