How was the name for Seaweed and Sawdust chosen?
We wanted something to represent where we live and what kind of products we offer. Seaweed for the area and the type of process of “weeding” for some of the products I do. (Weeding is when you get rid of excess vinyl material in projects). Sawdust for the woodworking part of the business.
