David I. Kenworthy

Each piece I build is a one of a kind. There is no mold that is followed. Even if something is built as a set each piece will not be exactly the same. I strive for excellence in every piece I create.


I have been building  furniture for several years mainly for theatrical performances. By taking the idea of theatrical design and putting that into building for a home I hope that it adds a sense of style that reminds us that, "All the world is a stage", and to live each moment intentionally and with purpose.

For 25 years I have built and designed furniture of every kind... tables, chairs, bars, and anything else you can think of, but it was all for theatrical productions. I finally decided, why not take that same level of style and inspiration and build furniture for homes so people can have a one of a kind sense of style and meaning they desire.

I have been married for 22 years to my gorgeous wife Sarah and have 4 amazing kids, Daniel and his wife Kristen, Connor and Paige. I have worked in the world of professional and academic theater for 30 years. I have designed sets and scenic elements, lights, sound, costumes, makeup, and solved problems that only happen on the stage!

All this have given me a perspective that is different than most. I see meaning in how people arrange the living room, the colors they choose, and even the materials they use. I made the choice after  much prodding to begin designing and creating furniture and home additions to help people create a feeling or emotion to their home that maybe they have not been able to do or just to add to the feeling that is already there. As Shakespeare said, "All the world is a stage" I hope that what I build adds that little sense of theatrical magic and fun to each home.

I am here to bring a sense of DOWN HOME RUSTIC to each and every person and house I create something for.
