About Me:Dory and Furniture
Craftsman

My name is Kevin White. I have been working with wood my whole life. It is my passion. I began building furniture pieces for my home and graduated to wooden boats inspired by my professional whitewater career and since, my private permit river life with my family and friends. I pride myself in artistic craftsmanship and functional design, using the highest quality materials with a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach.

My Mission

Ojai Dory and Home Furnishings Company is dedicated to building wooden boats and home furnishings with artistic craftsmanship and functional design. I use the highest quality materials in every project. I am dedicated to using materials that are environmentally friendly and sustainable. Whether your passion is running wild rivers, fly fishing, rowing in open bays and oceans, or relaxing in a Maloof inspired rocking chair by the fire, let me build a wooden art piece for you.

I believe that rowing in a wooden boat is a higher level activity, and that rowing gives us access to some of nature’s most wonderful places. I believe that the ethereal experience of being on a body of water in a wooden boat with oars in hand enables people to reach a higher level of mindfulness.

I believe that the experience of sitting on and touching a piece of functional art furnishing, handcrafted with care and passion, is something that can only be revealed through the organic relationship between the finished wood and the person. I build furnishing pieces that will be passed down through family generations using craftsman techniques and joinery that will stand the test of time.
