Tom Bodanske grew up with a fully stocked wood shop in the basement of his childhood home. He had all of the hand tools a boy could ask for, plus a great-uncle who loved woodworking. From a young age, Tom was building projects out of wood.
After studying cabinet carpentry in high school, Tom landed his first job after graduation in 1998. He started his career by installing hardwood flooring for a small company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he began his career, he truly loved installing hardwood floors.
Now, 25 year later, he still has a passion for working with wood, installing it, and seeing the end result!
From Woodworking Enthusiast to Flooring Expert
Tom worked for the Milwaukee company for 13 years and picked up side projects installing hardwood floors for family and friends. Considering a career change, Tom earned an Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering. However, his passion for working with wood and his expertise were in high demand. It became difficult to juggle two careers, so in 2013, he decided to open Bodanske Wood Flooring in Milwaukee and eventually relocated to Pulaski, Wisconsin, a village located northwest of Green Bay.
Passion for Restoring Flooring in Older Homes
Although Bodanske Wood Flooring installs hardwood flooring in new homes, Tom’s true passion is restoring flooring in older homes. A history buff, Tom loves seeing old architecture and homes come back to life. Quite often, he scrambles to find reclaimed materials that resemble the original flooring for an almost perfect match.
