Derek's love to create comes alive in his wood shop working with reclaimed wood. After moving to Kentucky in 2011, he immediately realized an abundance of materials was at his disposal. He continually came into barns, piles of wood, old windows and doors, pallets, and other aged and weathered materials. He has found so much joy in taking these abundant materials and in creating unique creations from them. His custom wood work sits in living rooms and kitchens, on decks and in businesses all over the country.

He and several other Kentucky craftsman work together to custom build farm tables, cabinets, industrial sliding doors, and more. You see their posts on the Kentucky Reclaimed Facebook page.

You can also see Derek's custom work in his online Etsy store, Kentucky Reclaimed, and purchase some of his work there!
