About Us

Kettu Woodworks is small family owned business located in Wake Forest, NC specializing in high quality products that are fun and safe for the whole family.


All of our products are hand made, using wood obtained from local lumber yards and milled in our shop.

All food / drink items are finished with food safe finishes.

The wooden pint glasses are finished with a food grade epoxy.

Cutting boards are coated with food grade mineral oil.

The mastermind behind Kettu Woodworks is Dave, a stay-at-home dad by day, and wood worker extraordinaire by night (and weekends).

Dave left his career in sales to pursue his passion of woodworking after the adoption of his baby girl who is now his main product tester and assistant. 

While we offer a variety of products for sale on this site and various craft fairs, we get great joy in creating custom products. A sample of the custom orders filled to date can be viewed in the Custom Orders section of this site. If you have a special request,  please message us - we'd love to bring your idea to life!

Kettu Woodworks is named after the family dog, a red Siberian Husky.

Kettu means fox in Finnish, a nod to Dave's heritage.
