I was born in Portland Oregon and have lived near there all my life. My Grandfather was a lineman for P.G.E but always had a wood project going. He built furniture, boats, Grandfather clocks and always had time to help others with their projects. His Grandfather was the town Blacksmith that would take on any project. My Grandfather always had an Oak barrel full of wood scraps that was mine to use for projects. He always included me in his life and work. Whether it was electrical, plumbing, boat building, or a Grandfather clock, he always let me help. I’m the Father of four, (all home births), Grandfather of fourteen, and am married living in Vancouver Washington on ½ acre. For the most part I’ve been a carpenter building houses, hospitals, schools, bridges, tunnels, high rises, spiral staircases, model making, cabinets, Teepee’s, log cabins, etc. I’ve been a high-tech superintendent overseeing the installation of the multi-million dollar tools that make the computer chips at Intel and have stood and worked directly on top of the Trojan Nuclear reactor. Of all these things I’ve been so lucky to experience, what gives me my greatest pleasure is working with wood. Since a young boy sharpening my Grandfathers handsaws what I admired in a man most was his knowledge of wood. I’ve been running a wood veneer online business for the past several years on eBay “exoticwoodveneerplus” which affords me the opportunity to see and have some of the most beautiful wood in the world. I have approximately ten tons of wood stored at my place. I live in a candy store. I hope to share some of my knowledge and projects and learn as well. Sincerely, Dan Deulen
