Howdy Owl History

In the spring of 2015 Brett & Kate Lofing founded Howdy Owl in the garage of their personal residence in Ashland, NE.  They purchased a small CNC Machine and began carving different designs into wood.  Several months were spent experimenting & designing - trying to find just the right combination of paints, stains, and types of wood.  Many items were made for friends and family and some sales were made online.  At the end of 2015, Howdy Owl began to sell their popular wood carved US & World Maps online and outgrew the space in the two-stall garage.  They moved to a small warehouse space in Lincoln, NE.  A few employees were brought on to help make and fulfill orders. By 2018, Howdy Owl was ready to expand again and purchased a warehouse building just down the road, and that is where Howdy Owl can be found today.  With a few large scale CNC machines, a flat bed printer, and roll printer Howdy Owl can make just about any home or office wall decor to fit your needs.  While our US & World Maps are our specialty, we also offer many other styles of wood wall art, family name signs, business logo signs, nursery decor, and provide unique gift ideas for any occasion!
