Custom woodworking bed frame by Doug Marvel, Marvelous Woodworking


Hello. I am Doug Marvel, owner of Marvelous Woodworking. As a third generation woodworker, crafting custom projects with wood has always been a part of my life. During my career as a computer consultant, I dabbled in woodworking—building custom furniture, performing complex repairs and completing unique projects. As my reputation grew as a specialty woodworker, my hobby began turning into a true passion. So in 2009, I left the consultancy world and started Marvelous Woodworking.

“A Craftsman, not a Contractor”

It’s more than a tagline at Marvelous Woodworking—it is the philosophy behind every project we take on. To me, it means I love what I do, and take pride in providing quality work. Many times I am brought into a project by a homeowner who has been told that what they want cannot be done. Because I view each project as unique, I take the time to solve the issues that daunt others. By combining engineering, design, and persistence, I am able to give each of my clients just what they are looking for. From staircase updates and custom fireplace mantels, to custom cabinetry and custom furniture, each project is done with quality in mind.
