Jonathan Spillane had been a carpenter for the past 22 years, but decided he needed a change of pace.

He's now the owner of Cocoapelli Chocolates, and has a 350-square-foot kitchen in his Natick garage. Every day is devoted to making a different type of chocolate, the Globe reports.

How exactly did he go from being a carpenter to chocolatier?

"I have always loved food," he told the Globe in a story today. "Wherever I travel, I buy whatever chocolate I find."
