Graphic Design

Does your business need a facelift or need to get ahead of the competition? We create stunning marketing materials that showcase your business. We believe that every business has a great asset, but sometimes it takes the right design to reach your customers. We can help create materials that make you stand apart from the rest.


Do you know how to reach your customers? We can create a marketing strategy, plan, and provide media placement that can give you a great return on your investment. Whether you are a small business or large corporation, we can build a marketing plan that fits your budget. Let the experts identify and harness a strategy that gets the customers or leads you need.

Woodworking & Fabrication

We pride ourselves by creating new and inspiring pieces that last for generations. CSD uses reclaimed barnwood, hardwoods, and used metals to produce timeless furniture and decor. Our work is completely custom and made to order. If you see something you like or want something built, please reach out to us so we can make your vision come true!

Installation & Delivery

Many custom pieces are large or complex. Don’t stress out about how our products get to you or are installed. We provide installation and delivery of many products to ensure your items are safe and sound. From large signs, tables, or wall covering we can install on location to put your mind at ease. But if you like to do that yourself, that’s cool too.
