About the Creator
David McDonald is a fourth generation rancher with roots that go deep here in Central Oregon. He has lived his whole life among the Junipers in this area and takes pride in utilizing this native tree in his craft. His woodworking started out as a way to keep his hands moving and his mind busy after he left the road construction business in 2006. He and his wife live just outside of Bend, Oregon on a 20 acre working farm and David builds all his furniture and other wood projects right there in his shop. He handpicks the trees and limbs that go into each piece with a vision in mind. This woodworking talent started out as a way to utilize his skills and attention to detail while making gifts for family members. He started out with an outdoor arch as a request from his wife for her garden, then moved on to making a beautiful bed for his daughter's wedding present. Since then, this passion has blossomed to include toy boxes, bistro tables, bars, candle holders, outdoor benches, display mounts, coat racks, coffee tables, desks, keepsake boxes, and much more for his many family members, friends, and project admirers.
