Delmar Woodcraft was established in 1978 by Detlev Friese who started his career by making small wooden home decor pieces and began to craft furniture shortly thereafter, believing in building hand-crafted custom furniture the old fashion way, one piece at a time, and according to tried and true craftsmanship. His wife Marilyn takes care of Delmar’s administrative duties and business operations.


Delmar is skilled in designing and building a variety of pieces including vanities, buffets & hutches. They use a variety of fine woods including Pine, Cherry and Maple. The old techniques of dove tail drawers and mortise and tenon joints are still used by the Friese family and all furniture is finished with traditional stains and authentic milk paint, using hand rubbed finishes that are applied to achieve an authentically aged appearance.
