Hello and thank you for stopping in!
Woodworking is more of a passion than a business for me. I've been building and selling things for almost twenty years, all while keeping a full-time job. I find joy working with wood. Building the products in this shop is my creative outlet—my playground—it's how I find inspiration and joy. Whether I'm building from new materials or bringing new life to worn-out relics, I always find satisfaction in making these devices of beauty and utility. I love to create.
Explore my shop and let me know if you have questions about anything. Also, if you see something you like, but it's not quite right, I can help. I'd love to work with you to build a custom piece. Together we can design and create whatever suits your needs and personal style.
DDC Project Plans
In 2016, I started to post my projects on Instagram, hoping to attract a few more customers for my wooden wares. I found a few buyers, but more importantly, I found a vibrant community of woodworkers who were eager to see and learn more about my woodworking projects. This community of makers prompted me to share more of my designs and to start selling woodworking plans. So I began to write down my methods and document my processes. Then in 2017, I published my first project plan—the 20-inch Layered Cross—it was an instant hit, and it remains a top-seller today. Since then, I've expanded my collection of project plans to more than 20 titles!
I've shifted the focus of my small-scale woodworking business to woodworking education. I'm still building things and fulfilling orders, but now I'm also on a mission to equip woodworkers with tips, tricks, and time-saving techniques. My goal is to inspire you, encourage you, and do whatever I can to help you improve your craft. I'm focused on delivering easy-to-follow, high-quality plans. Project plans that combine my eye for design with my heart for woodworking. Plans that teach woodworking enthusiasts the things that I've learned along the way!
