I found Dale through Kickstarter and got caught up by the story, the history behind what he was doing, this 150 year old salvaged church pew wood he was using to craft elegant and beautiful kitchenware. I use my pepper grinder everyday and my trivet and serving tray are always on display.
My experience with The Chefs Countertop campaign led me to approach Dale again, about a custom chess board. We corresponded for months on the perfect board. My intention was a gift for my wife and I wanted it to be unique, not something you could just go out and buy, something she'd be proud of and wanna show off. What I got was even more, it was a piece of art. I could not be happier with this board! Dale even incorporated my sketches into the design. For the amount of time he spent and the look on my wife's face, I don't think I could've found a better place to spend my money.

I just received my Chef’s Countertop and am in awe. Your work is beautiful and so meaningful. I put each item on the countertop and promptly removed them as they seem too beautiful to use. However, I know with age and use my Chef’s Countertop will become even more beautiful.
You are NOT just another woodcrafter but an artist with a passion for beauty. I feel privileged to have found you on Kickstarter.
Best of luck and Godspeed.

I received the pen on Tuesday and have already started to use it. It is a very nice pen and writes well. It has excellent balance and feel when you are using it.
I understand that African Blackwood is extremely hard and has metallic -like properties, which make it difficult to turn. The feelable knotholes may not be
to everyone's liking, but I think it adds character to the pen and as you say makes it unique.
This is an excellent addition to my collection and I am very well pleased with it.
I will be ordering again very soon.
Followup review from a new order:
It is gorgeous Dale. I Think you are some kind of Wizard! You certainly know how to turn wood!!

I lucked onto this custom wood specialist by mistake (lucky me).
I ordered my fist set of pens and I was hooked due to the masterful work and care shown to me by the end product.
I’ve since place several orders and asked SEVERAL questions and Dale has been super patient in answering all of my questions. I’ve shown my pens to several people and everyone I’ve shown have been very impressed. My wife has threatened to “borrow” my pens so much she now has a pen of her own and will be ordering more.
I’m excited to have met this seller and I know I will be doing business with him for a long time.
If you want to find a great wood working master with awesome customer service you have found where you are supposed to be... welcome to the custom woodworking family.

I recently ordered several items from Dale Dansie who owns “Just another Woodcrafter!!” Well I think Dale qualifies as the Best Woodcrafter in the World!!
He pays attention to every detail!! In my order he labels each piece with the name of wood he used to create the item!! I had him make 3 pepper grinders and each one is perfect!! Also each is made from different wood so they are very unique which make them very special!! He even included boxes to put the gifts in! What more could one ask for? I would give him 5 STARS for sure!!!

I have recently purchased four pens from Just Another Woodcrafter, I gave two of them to some of my best friends to use in there office. I loved that when I went to buy them I had a choice of color of wood and fittings. The quality of the pens are amazing but the best part is the wood that was used for the two that I gave away. The other two will be given as Christmas gifts to my brother and sister-in-law knowing that they will love them as much as I have picking them out.
You can't go wrong using these as gifts for someone else or even for you. I am a repeat buyer and will continue to buy more.

Dale's pen is quite simply, the best writing instrument I have ever used. The quality in workmanship produces a pen that is as beautiful as it is functional. I use mine daily in the course of my business. I have received many compliments on the pen as well. I HIGHLY recommend these pens from Dale. You will not be disappointed.
