|My Story|

Joshua D. Draughon

U May Approach The Bench, Ltd.

I work as a full-time attorney for the local juvenile court system in my city. My wife and I are proud parents of six amazing children. After becoming an attorney, I quickly realized that between sports, braces, food, etc., my modest income wasn't going to cut it. I was in the truck one day, when I heard a radio personality say that if you have a hobby, you should try to turn your hobby into a business.

I was in my last year of law school, and I knew I couldn't start a business at that time, but I patiently (or maybe not so patiently) waited until the time was right to turn my hobby into marketable art. Before I decided on a company name, I had previously made custom benches for a few clients. I thought the name U May Approach The Bench would be a great play-on-words to incorporate my career as an attorney, and my art. I know. I'm clever. The slogan, Attorney by Day, Artist by night, Patriot for life, just seemed to fit perfectly as well.

That said, my primary goal is to provide you with handcrafted flags, logos, and signs direct from my little shop to the walls of warriors and patriots throughout this great land. 

I love the United States of America--her Stars & Stripes, her National Anthem, and her Exceptionalism. I respect, admire, and honor our Veterans, past and present. Their sacrifice can never be adequately repaid.

I am privileged to have three brothers who serve in various branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. They are examples to me of courage, sacrifice and dedication to their families and their country. It is an honor to hand craft flags that I hope will hang on the walls of Veterans throughout this great land.

I'm equally grateful for the hard work and dedication that our LEOs, Firefighters, and other First Responders show on a daily basis in communities across the Nation. We need you. We appreciate you. Thank you!
