Meet Our Members: Jim Buckley

By websites@tappnetwork.com

Odds are that if you’ve sat at a desk in The Mill, you’ve seen or heard the name Jim Buckley. Jim is the man behind JKB Design, a small shop in Montchanin creating custom furniture. Over a year ago, Robert boldly approached Jim to help him build a docking station for a new coworking space he was creating. Flash forward to today, and they are still working together to build up the space where we do business. 

Delaware born and coming from a family of workmen, Jim’s knack for woodwork comes from his great uncle, Howard, the head cabinet maker for Winterthur. However, Jim wasn’t always a furniture designer. He started in Physical Therapy school before realizing that sitting at a desk wasn’t for him. He says, “For me it has really always been about the process of elimination. In my line of business, you realize pretty quickly that people are more keen on what they don’t want rather than what they do. I was the same way.”  

Jim says work is always interesting because he never does the same project twice. And owning his own business still allows him to have time to pursue hobbies like board sports, listening to everything from punk rock to classical, and spending time by the water which he claims is one of his main inspirations.
