My name is Angela Brown aka Artist Angie Brown, as some of you may remember my first debut in Wenatchee Book Co. featuring a Bushel of Apples last year. Before I continue, I would like to thank Ana at Wenatchee Book Co. for hosting us once again at the First Friday Art Walk.
As you know I am an artist, but what you may not know is that I am an artist by passion only, by trade I am special education teacher, student, and a full time Mom, that is why I am stepping out of the limelight and passing the torch to my partner-in-crime and brilliant minded Daniel Brown, owner and operator of DBWoodtech. Daniel is an engineer by trade, but like me, he has a passion for creation, this passion comes in the form of woodworking and fine desktop furnishings. There is a fun little story about how DBWoodtech came to being and I would like to take a moment to share this with you now, detailing the facts as I recall them.
It started on a fountain pen forum when someone asked Dan, if he could make a vertical stand that looked much like a shark fin for a fountain pen. Daniel being the engineer and never been known to back down from a challenge, went to work on his bench press and band saw. A few hours later he came out with the piece just as described by the person on the forum. He posted the piece on social networking sites and got such positive reviews and people asking if he could make different ones. After days of this, I encouraged him to set up his Etsy shop and sell some of his designs. It was an instant success! He sold his first piece in almost no time at all (something that does not commonly happen). After some time we had assumed that the craze would peter out, it didn’t.
Before we knew, we were making enough money that it was time to consider getting a business license. While thinking of a name we started with DB All Works but when I drew up the logo, there was no way to get away from what appeared to be D Ballworks, which, as you can imagine just wouldn’t do. Then a friend of ours suggested “Woodtech” and thus DBWoodtech was born! Since then, DBWoodtech has sent products from around the world. From paperhouse kits, and wedding invitations, to pen stands and custom signs to people all over the world. DBWoodtech has a pro-grade laser cutter, 3D printer, a CNC router and a complete quality and unique products to the customer’s specifications. At DBWoodtech, Dan doesn’t just crank out products, but treats each piece as a special work of art. He doesn’t send out a piece with the DBWoodtech name until he is convinced that it is worthy to bear the name. Rather you are looking for a gift, or just admire fine woodworking and/or paper crafting; his products are something to be admired and are proudly displayed at the best used book store in Wenatchee!
If you have any questions about DBWoodtech or would simply like to drop in a line with a request or an idea, go ahead and drop in a message either through his Etsy Shop or message him on his Facebook.
