About David and Renee

David and Renee are the double-duo behind It's David and Renee! We are pretty fun people with a good sense of humor and together we are living our best adventure. We love to travel, love to laugh so hard until we cry, and love getting ice cream for any reason whatsoever.

New in 2022

We are now a full time business! David left his job at the end of 2021 so that we could try pursuing this business full time in 2022. We legally transitioned our business into an LLC, we now have business insurance, and have dotted our Is and crossed our Ts. We are so excited to get to do this full time. It's scary and nerve-wrecking, but so far everything is going well! We have a wonderful support network of family, friends, and other small business owners and artists.

 

We are continuing to renovate and upgrade our shop space and have big plans for a new layout that includes a professional dust collection system. 

 

We are planning on applying for juried art shows instead of craft shows this year. We keep finding ourselves disappointed at local craft shows and festivals because we don't fit in. Our art is real art at real art prices, not cheap craft-level prices. We've been told that we need to get into the juried art world, so that's what we're going to do!

 

Additionally, we created a Patreon group for our #1 fans- The Timberdoodle! We wanted to be able to give our biggest supporters and number one fans the chance to shop our wood drops first and foremost. Some feedback we received last year was that people couldn't get the wood they wanted because it sold out so fast. Well, we decided to make a special space that lets our best people shop first whenever there's a wood drop, along with exclusive promo codes, ability to get their own art featured on our site and social media, and ability to submit special requests for bulk/special orders!

Who We Are

We are a small business in New Cumberland, PA  that creates sustainably sourced, specialty wood surfaces for other artists to use as a canvas for their own art. We also create our own fine art pieces, including multi-media pyrography and artisan woodcraft.

What We Do

Individually, David is the main woodworker and Renee is the main artist, but we work together to merge our crafts and ideas. You can view Renee's art gallery here and our custom work gallery here.

 

We started off doing simple woodworking, but now we are growing in new directions. Renee is growing her pyrography side of the business and is now teaching woodburning classes in the local area! You can find her local classes here. We also have our fine art and artisan woodworking on display in the local Harrisburg/York area and you can find where we are at here

 

The biggest portion of our business is focused on making quality wood surfaces for artists to use. Having created our own art for sale using commercially available wood surfaces, we've been disappointed in the lack of truly artisan-grade products available. This inspired us to create our own sustainably sourced, specialty wood surfaces for artists, like us, to use as a canvas for their own art. Now, when we create out art, we are inspired by the intrinsic beauty of the wood before we even begin. As artists supporting other artists, we are proud to help people bring their visions to life on canvases as unique as themselves. Click here to read more about our handmade wood surfaces.
