KND Woodworking is a small business operated out of the home of Dan and his wife Kate. They live along the Puyallup River in unincorporated Pierce County just off the Bonney Lake plateau. They started their business in 2007 and over the past 15+ years they have sold Dan’s work primarily at area farmers markets and local art and craft shows. The Neyens’ have both been involved with wood and wood products most of their working careers. Dan majored in Forestry and Wood Technology in college and then spent his working years in the structural wood products field. Kate worked in accounting and information technology her entire career for two of the nation’s largest wood products and structural wood products manufacturers.
Over the years Dan has made and sold a variety of home furnishings but now primarily focuses his efforts on making wooden cutting boards and a variety of kitchen furnishings/utensils. Today, most of their sales come through annual participation in five area juried art and craft shows.
