About

We are a family owned business and we love to create just for you.

Don:
I have been in and around the woodcraft business all of my life. It began when my parents started selling their own woodcraft when I was only six years old. I never considered woodworking as a career path in my younger years. I watched my parents work late nights seven days a week to get their business a name. Being young and naive I never noticed that they where offering me a way of life. A chance to carry on a tradition of creating quality woodcraft for people to enjoy.

My parents have since passed several years now. I myself went on to choose a career in management for over 25 years until the corporation that I was working for decided that I could be replaced with someone making far less than I was making. I was both devastated and desperate…

My parents have since passed several years now. I myself went on to choose a career in management for over 25 years until the corporation that I was working for decided that I could be replaced with someone making far less than I was making. I was both devastated and desperate. Then I remembered what my parents had thought me about woodcraft.

I chose to name my business by a different name out of respect for my parents. They worked hard to earn their name and so shall I. I will take all the knowledge that I have to bring their tradition of the highest quality and best priced woodcraft available on the market today.

If any of you out there from the Carolinas remember the craft shop named Woodcreations, fell free to message us. We still make the same names that everyone loves with more colors to choose from. We would love to hear from you.

LaShaye:
My dream has always been to have my own business. I have always been a maker and love making beautiful items. I love working with just about any material and the whole creative process. My happiest times are when I receive a message from a happy customer. I can't get over the feeling I get when I realize how much some one loves an item we made.

Thank you so much and please come back to see us anytime,
Don & LaShaye
