Our mission at First State Garage Wood Works is to provide all my customers the best products made with the most beautiful lumber. All orders are held to the highest standard and handled with care.


  A little about myself, I am Matthew Dyer Managing member and craftsmen for First State Garage Wood Works LLC. I've served in the Delaware Army National guard since 2014 and am still serving today. I have been wood working since 2017 but have a large background in mechanics and fabrication.

    Originally, I mainly worked on cars and small equipment, I only dabbled here and there in wood working but never made a go of it. Until 2017 when my wife needed a new cutting board and I figured I'd give it a shot. To my surprise I fell in love with the community and the vast array of beautiful materials, every board is unique, and I strive to highlight that beauty in every single piece I make.
