Owner and Founder Scott Isley built his first project out of wood at the age of thirteen, a trellis that still exists outside his parents' house. He continued to display an interest in woodwork throughout his school years and was referred to a cabinet shop right before his high school graduation. After years at two premier shops working on some of the largest and finest homes in Los Angeles, he obtained a State Contractors License (#858954) in 2005, and SMI was born.
