Vashon Borich-Leach is the original T.U.F.F. Momma. T.U.F.F. Stands for Tough, Unstoppable, Fearless and Free. She embodies these qualities as a 6th degree black belt in karate, an instructor, serial entrepreneur, business coach, pallet crafter and marketing maven. She lives in Branson West with her husband, Ron, two sons, Ty & Jack and a variety of furry pets.
Vashon first got into pallet crafting after learning how to build a dog bunk bed for her two rescue dogs, Dixie and Reba. She suddenly got the woodworking bug and began creating all sorts of furniture, spice racks and other products using reclaimed pallet wood. She loves that she is doing her part to help the environment as she rescues pallets that would have most-likely been burned or take up space in landfills.
A few years later she got excited about salt crafting after trying some gourmet salts that were gifted to her. An avid cook, she began experimenting with salt mixes and recipes from delicious gourmet salts.

T.U.F.F. Momma Pallet Craft™
T.U.F.F. Momma Pallet Craft™ uses reclaimed lumber and pallet wood in all our projects. This gives each item it's own unique rustic look. Nail holes, burls, scratches, knots and other imperfections are typical of reclaimed wood and gives each product its "aged to perfection" look.
We use only wood that has been heat treated and certified safe per the labeling on the pallets we select. Be aware of this should you choose to purchase reclaimed wood products from other sellers. They may be unaware or don't check their wood as thoroughly as we do. Some pallets are treated with harmful chemicals! Ours are not.
