Who Is Dwayne Thompson?
Born in 1953, owner and master-craftsman Dwayne Thompson has been living, playing and working near Timpson Creek his whole life.
He fondly remembers days of riding motorcycles and camping out in the woods that surround his workshop. Thanks in large part to two influential high school teachers, Mr. Jack. Prince and Mr. Jack Martin, Dwayne first developed his drafting and woodworking skills in shop class. He later polished these skills at North Georgia Technical College in Clarkesville, GA.
After school, he was hired by a local furniture company to turn artists’ sketches into complete drawings and build prototypes. A few years later, he went out on his own and opened Timpson Creek Millworks.
At first, he never turned down a job that came through the door whether it was sawing a log in half or replacing an ax handle. Over time, more work came in and Dwayne began building his own furniture, but still with a traditional flair.
