About Us

We are a small business located in Portland, Maine specializing in handcrafted products of uncompromising quality using traditional craftsmanship. 

We started in 2016 as a boutique guitar business.  As we grew and shifted focus to production instruments our founder, Duane Klein, began to feel he was losing touch with the craftsmanship that he was passionate about.  That is when the idea for DEK Craftworks began.

With this new endeavor we are striving to bring the focus back to the traditional craftsmanship that seems to be getting lost in our modern mass-produced society.  All products are handcrafted one at a time to heirloom quality standards from materials that have been sourced domestically.

Our product offerings consist of wooden kitchen and homeware products, as well as custom guitars and furniture.

So if you are fed up with the throwaway culture of today, and appreciate high quality products that will last a lifetime, we welcome your kindred spirit.
