My name is Dan Dustin and my business is hand hewing. I work entirely by hand, and I am an expert at re-hewing sawn material to match work in old buildings as well as new construction. I’ve done a good deal of work over the last 50 years, from New Jersey to Maine, mostly in private homes. My work can also be seen in Public Libraries, Inns and many local shops, including restoration work at Canterbury Shaker Village.

I can hew just about anything, including planks only an inch thick, which means that you can have hand hewn mouldings, window and door frames, and box beams.

I hew only the sides that will be seen so that you or your contractor can work with my beams easily and at less cost.
