My name is John Decker. I have been woodworking for most of my life. My first big project was a small wooden race boat, which I built when I was thirteen. I raced that boat successfully for many years.
I spent the next 25 years in the marine industry. During that time, I honed my engineering, design, and management skills while working at Wellcraft and Marine Concepts.
On nights and weekends, I continued to woodwork, and in 2003 I left Marine Concepts to devote my full attention to my craft. Our family relocated from Florida to North Carolina, and I’ve been making furniture here ever since.
