Dustin & Jenni

Outlaw Woodworks was founded in January of 2014 by Dustin DeWall and his wife Jenni. Timber framing has always been a fascination of Dustin, and he's proud to be building something that lasts for centuries using the same technology and joinery that has stood the test of time Continental Europe and Japan for more than 1300 years. Timber framing is unique in building because of the strength it derives from joinery as well as its unique architectural atmosphere.

Dustin has a passion for artisan woodworking and received his undergraduate degree in architectural woodwork throughout his career he has gained a great deal of knowledge in how the wood moves with time and as it dries. He has worked with heavy timbers for six years with experience ranging from the high end resorts of deer valley to adding unique character to single family residence.

Outlaw Woodworks takes pride in continuing this heritage of timber framing craftsmanship along with using a renewable resource that has no harsh chemicals used as a preservative or adhesive as does traditional stick framed homes. With cancer and other ailments plaguing society one can’t help but to think maybe engineered materials has played a role like known culprits; asbestos and lead, making natural materials all that much more appealing. Most timber harvested in today’s market is harvested responsibly with new growth replacing the old. In recent years the Bark Beatle has infested and killed millions of acres of old growth forestry and to help combat the spread of this infectious plague and disastrous forest fires it is our responsibility to remove the standing dead from our forest lands.
