Dan Petrovic (DJP) began woodworking at an early age starting out with birdhouses and bike ramps. His fascination with wood continued to increase, as did his curiosity to improve the cheap guitar he began playing on. After seeking out a great teacher, he decided to attended a year long apprenticeship program under the tutelage of master luthier Sasha Radicic. This experience coalesced his love of woodworking and music, as well as launching him in the direction he desired.
Since then, DJP has studied carving, marquetry, and wood finishing. He has also worked in the furniture restoration/repair and cabinet industries. He continues to design, build, and finish one-of-a kind guitars, furniture, and works of art, and offers furniture repair, touch-up, restoration, and alterations.
