About Dennehey Design Co.

Dennehey Design Company features the work of Shane Dennehey, a carpenter and graphic designer with over 20 years of experience.


Woodworking is more of a passion than a business for me. Creating 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 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. 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. 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. I began to write down my methods and document my processes. In 2017, I published my first project plan—the 20-inch Layered Cross—it was an instant hit, and remains a top-seller today. Since then, I've expanded my collection of DIY 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, encourage, and do whatever I can to help you improve in your craft. I'm focused on delivering easy-to-follow, high-quality plans that combine my eye for design with my heart for woodworking.
