Classic Furniture Designs is owned by Dave Goddard. Dave has over 40 years of woodworking experience. He has a Bachelors Degree in Architecture (with a minor in interior design) and a Masters Degree in Management. Over the years he has built his woodworking knowledge and honed his skills through self study and college courses, as well as completing numerous post graduate seminars and extension courses in wood working. Some of the more recent furniture design and construction courses completed include: Cabinet-making and Millwork, Fine Furniture Design/Construction, Working in Wood, Cabinetry, Furniture Finishing, Joinery and Working at Woodworking.

Dave specializes in custom designed, one of a kind, hand crafted pieces of furniture. His specific areas of craftsmanship are the Traditional Lines, Antique Design and French Country, however, he feels totally at home in the Contemporary/Modern Styles as well. Dave's major talent lies in his ability to work with any wood and any style. He considers the specific needs and desires of the customer and delivering that "exactly what I wanted" piece of furniture to be his forte.

Creating custom furniture is a third full time career for Dave. He spent over twenty years in the United States Air Force as a Pilot and Commander, and ten years as an Aerospace Department Manager with the Northrop Grumman Corporation working on the B-2 Bomber.
