Read our bios below!!
Berkley grad and war veteran, Steve has turned his vast knowledge of carpentry, history, and creativity into making one of a kind tables and lighting. While this may be Steve's "retirement" job, it seems he's only just getting started! Steve is also a licensed contractor with the State of California, and a former member of the Dunsmuir Planning Commission.
Lennan's Junktion is a family business located in the quaint small town of Dunsmuir, California. Our father and son team, Steven Kirkwood and Dylan Lennan, are the creative force behind the store. Steve and Dylan make the custom, re-purposed furniture and lighting. Each piece is unique and one of a kind . We believe that just because something is "old," its value is only increased . When we make a piece, we strive to use as much locally sourced materials as possible.
When you come into our store, you'll often see one or more teenagers sitting behind the counter. Our three teens are involved in the store in a variety of ways. Each have their own talents, strengths, and interests. As they grow older we hope to use those skills in the store!
Lucas: The oldest and the one you'll probably see working the most. Lucas has an interest in computers and electronics.
Abigail: Abby has a huge range of skills and hobbies. She is a very talented young artist in the style of Anime.
Noah: Noah's interests may change every other minute, but he is extremely talented in music. He has a gifted ability in drums and guitar.
When the three of them put their minds together they can achieve some pretty amazing things.
