Growing out of a hobby and Denny’s love for the beauty of wood products, D. L. Drury Custom Woodworks began in 1979 as a part-time venture, with Denny buildling cabinets and furniture out of the garage at home in Tumalo, Oregon. The double-car space was soon expanded to a third bay to accommodate the commercial grade equipment that Denny needed.
His creative abilities were soon demonstrated when he was hired to build a 9-foot diameter, round oak table for a fabric store. To bend the oak edging, Denny researched, then built a steam box to work the wood and complete the beautiful table.
Our first employee was hired in 1984 and retired in 2003, after nearly 20 years of support and loyalty to the business.
We have remained a small, strictly custom, shop with just a few experienced and skilled artisans, keeping Denny’s hand in the creativity and oversight of the manufacture of each product.
Denny’s daughter, Leigh Anne Denney, has been employed as a skilled cabinetmaker for over a decade and is now the president of the corporation.
