Corey’s Custom Woodworking

Welcome to my World of Wood! My career in Custom Woodworking began in 1992 when I graduated from High School and my parents gave me a table saw for graduation. My Mom first commissioned me to build two nightstands for their bedroom. My next project was a dresser and headboard for my parents’ bedroom.

Finding a wood working place to work at here in Rapid City, however, was no easy task. Rick Walter, at Iron Mountain Woodshop hired me as an apprentice from 1992 - 1993. Rick hired me full time in 1993. In 1996 Rick sold the Iron Mountain Woodshop (now Smokin’ Joes) and I went to work for Anderson Millworks. In 1998 I went to work for Bill’s Custom Woodworking. In June 2001 I started my own shop, Corey’s Custom Woodworking. Bill and I still work together.

I have an eleven year old son, Koen. That’s the two of us at the rock maze, near Nemo, with Homer, our “adopted” dog. We love to go hiking and riding our bikes on the Mickelson trail. Soon we will be out fishing. When it comes to fishing, Koen takes after his great-grandfather, Tom Seehuetter, who was a fisherman guide.

My Life as a Woodworker


Unique Yarn Table I Made For My Mom

Since my Mom retired in 2014 one of her hobbies is crocheting. She wanted a stand where she could put all her yarn for her project, bring the yarn through holes in plexiglas on two sides, and have the yarn flow easily on dowels. After the first one, someone else gave her the idea to have a lazy susanne on the bottom. Then she wanted a small drawer at the top to store her crochet hooks, tapestry needles, etc.
