I started woodworking at the age of 13 under the initial guidance of several highly skilled artisans. I have always been driven to create the best work possible due to my innate talent for woodworking and keen eye for design. I truly enjoy all aspects of the process; from designing and fabricating, to seeing the finished project.
I created Dean Dauplaise LLC after attending the Furniture Design program at RIT. I became highly motivated to start my own business after realizing my passion was offering high quality work for clients and not just for myself.
As my work clearly displays in the portfolio, everything is built to endure many decades of use while being loved and appreciated by its owners.
