Shane Hall’s Story

Shane Hall grew up in New Jersey. During college, he played offensive line at University of South Carolina for Coach Lou Holtz from 1999 - 2002. In 2003, he moved to the NFL playing with the Seattle Seahawks, ending with a dislocated kneecap. 

After his NFL career, Shane worked in finance for several years before returning to a childhood passion, woodworking. After studying under a master craftsman for five years, Shane opened his own shop in South Carolina, Hall Handcrafted, where he specializes in custom furniture and cabinetry.
