Our Story

My name is Rodney Dorrance and I am a third generation carpenter and woodworker. I started working with barnwood through a friend when I was 16 years old. 

After working for other people in the construction industry, in the early 2000's my wife, Kim, and I we started Wood -N- Rods to continue our passion of building. We are a team that has an excitement  for building custom pieces of furniture out of reclaimed wood. 

All of our pieces created are truly one of a kind that capture the history of barns that they come from while providing a unique character to your home. So with our skills and your ideas we can create a custom piece of furniture for you and generations to come!
