Crafted By Dale
My passion for woodworking started at the age of nine when my neighbor gave me a bench scroll saw and a wood lathe. My first project was making a key holder for my grandmother, an item which I have hanging in our kitchen today!
In high school I excelled in wood shop, making tables, lamps and a desk. As I entered adulthood and acquired a number of pieces of wood working equipment, I really enjoyed making furniture, building decks and doing various home improvements.
After moving to Virginia in 2008, I found a home with a detached garage where I could really expand my woodworking passion.
In 2013, after spending 42 years in the heavy construction business building highways, bridges, light rail systems and marine facilities, I decided it was time to retire and spend more time working with wood. I expanded my shop and purchased a line of quality equipment. Over the last 4 years I have perfected my skills by making furniture for my home and family. This year I decided I would start selling my furniture.
I was saved in 2002 and became a follower of Jesus Christ, a carpenter, therefore I chose my logo, “Son of the Carpenter”. I thank God daily for the skills he has given me and I am blessed that I can share my work with others.
