Here at JD’s Custom Woodworks, we take great pride in everything that we do. You may have seen our work at Peace, Love and Little Donuts – Monroeville, PA. The Giant Rustic Table pictured above, or the bench seats, or the Rustic Perimeter Tables. Maybe the Custom Counter Tops or the Refinished Faux Barn Beams overhead….Maybe the Table Tops upstairs. Or, maybe you’ve seen one of our many items made for Grace Life Church.
We don’t specialize in any one particular category of woodworking, but rather in Custom Woodworking. If you saw something and want it made locally by a skilled artist and using the best materials – we are here to help. Or, maybe you have a family heirloom cedar chest or other furniture item – you want it restored, repaired or even modified – we are here for you.
At the present time I, Josh “JD” Wing, am the sole proprietor of JD’s Custom Woodworks. I have always had the desire to create. I can’t even begin to explain my love for the process of taking Rough Lumber and transforming it to a finished product. I don’t work using plans in the general sense of the word. I have a rough idea of what I want to accomplish – then after studying the materials and “playing with ideas”, only then do I “FIND” the treasure in the wood. I believe this quote says it better. “The Sculpture is already complete within the marble block, before I start my work. It is already there, I just have to chisel away the superfluous material.” – Michelangelo Buonarroti I truly love what I do, every bit of it. I love everything from making something new and unique, to meeting new people and working together to design the perfect gift, and I especially love “The Big Reveal” – the moment when they (the customer, recipient) see and truly appreciate the craftsmanship and quality.
Here at JD’s Custom Woodworks we offer Custom Woodworking such as Cutting Boards, Coasters, Tea Boxes and other small gift items. We also offer Dining Tables, Coffee Tables, [Book] Shelves and other furniture items. And, everything in between. We look forward to working with you on your next built-in, custom gift, furniture addition or whatever else you come up with.
We are on Etsy as WingWoodWork and we invite you to check out our items available on there. We also have several other items in stock and you can always check with us to see what we have available.
Also, we are always looking for new team members. We are very interested in meeting with young artists and those interested in design and manufacturing. If you like what we do and are interested in a possible internship, apprenticeship or other opportunities – please contact us.
