Soft Spot Studio is a company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan and founded by Kade Maycroft. In 2020, he inherited his grandfathers' vintage woodworking tools and long held onto stash of walnut and mahogany. He has been teaching himself the ins and outs of various woodworking techniques ever since. Originally a photographer, he uses his perspective as an artist to form objects he often sees as functional sculptures out of wood. He uses a hybrid of modern and hand tools with the goal of making a piece with the innate human touch. The name itself is both a reference to the soft birthmark on his forehead and the idea that we all have a soft spot for something.


When he isn't woodworking. He's renovating his 100-year-old house or taking a walk in the woods with his wife and dog.
