Tom and Heather’s Path to Woodworking
Our woodworking company was born in the spring of 2020, right when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Within six weeks, our founders Tom and Heather Deno lost their jobs and caught COVID-19. Right then and there, they knew they had to stand up and reinvent things.
We've loved every minute of our journey. Ok, maybe not every minute but we are making it work.
Chapter One - Life Sucks, so What Are We Going to Do?
In the Spring of 2020, TDeez Badass Creations was born when we lost our jobs and contracted Covid-19 all within a six-week span. After having a freak-out moment, we decided to stand up rather than lay down and let life stamp us out. We made the decision that if we were going down, we were going down with a fight! We started out with a few reclaimed cypress boards and made a couple of tables and a firepit based on designs we had created in our home and backyard bar, hoping that others would like our stuff as much as we do.
Why TDeez Badass Creations? Because we believe if you are going to do something, be creative and make it Badass.
Chapter Two - Just a Hustlin'
By August, we realized it was time to put up or shut up, so we cashed out our savings and went for it! After a 6-week renovation project, we officially opened our doors on November 14, 2020, and moved into a 3,600 square foot location located at 2132 Pulaski Hwy, Havre de Grace (on Hwy. 40 between Aberdeen and Havre de Grace, MD).
Chapter Three - A True One-Stop-Shop!
After several long weeks working 15 hour days of not only working on custom projects and selling wood but at the same time getting the store up and running we finally did it! Our vision of just buying/selling wood slabs has now evolved into also carrying woodworking supplies such as Osmo Oil, Walrus Oil, General Finish, Wisebond and Starbond Products, table bases, handles, metal gears, and other cool things we find that we think customers can incorporate into their projects. We also have a section of the store dedicated to local artists creating beautiful works of art with our wood!
Transforming Plain Ol’ Wood Into Works of Art
When it comes to personalizing your home, wooden furniture and décor are a great way to add a cozy, down-to-earth touch to any space. But filling your property with boring, mass-produced, and poorly constructed wood decorations is not gonna cut it.
If you want something that has been made with care and attention to detail based on your unique design ideas, turn to TDeez Badass Creations. We create custom-designed products from live edge wood slabs and other wood materials. In each creation, we incorporate a mix of industrial and rustic design elements to produce items that look as beautiful as you envisioned. Want to make your own Badass creation? We are here to support your dreams and will source the most perfect wood slab and materials and will remain on standby for questions and help if needed.
