About Us

Hello There!

I’m Derek and I run CraftedDollar.com

I have always been interested in money and woodworking so naturally I gravitated towards turning my woodworking hobby into a profitable side hustle. Along with managing Crated Dollar I also run a growing woodworking Etsy business that brought in over $40,000 over the last two years!

I started this site as a way to show others how I have grown my woodworking business while being a full time stay at home parent. If you’re interested in woodworking and want to open your own shop then I hope we can help you out on that journey.

My writing has been featured in MSN, The Ladders, and And.co to name a few.

If you’re interested in working with me or featuring your products on The Money Family please feel free to send me an email at [email protected] and we can chat.
