Our Story

Old English Farmhouse Dining Table

For as long as I can remember I've had a passion for woodworking. I still have memories of nailing washers onto an old board to create a helicopter when I was about 6 years old. That passion has served me well over the decades.


In the mid 90's I started Dutchman Woodworking, a small 2-3 man company trimming houses outside of Detroit. After a few years my skills had moved us into higher end homes and the need for custom woodworking grew. It didn't take long building custom cabinetry on-site when I decided to open my own woodworking shop. We quickly made a name for ourselves building bars, entertainment centers and one-off furnishings.


We were doing well but it was time to start a family. That's what brought us to Chicago, opening the doors to TruCraft Furniture in 2010.
