All my life I have had a fascination with wood. I decided finally after 15 years of collecting to share it with the public~ it all started when I saw a Barn burning in the distance of the rolling hills of Jo Daviess County, Illinois. I sat and watched the barn and started thinking why? Who built the Barn? What kind of wood? I guess I like to transform something that no one wants into something useful, artistic, and timeless ~ Dejawood has become my project of taking Logs, Barnwood and discarded wood into useful everyday household items (tables mostly) to be cherished for generations to come~!
