Meet Derek Drocy

Richmond, Virginia

Derek Drocy started Drocy Woodworks with the desire for a simple, yet functional, modern desk. After several unsuccessful attempts at finding what he was looking for, Derek decided to build his own. After completing his first project, he realized that the possibilities were endless.

Over the last few years, Drocy upgraded from an idea, a few basic tools and a makeshift workbench mounted to the tailgate of an old pickup truck, to a large maker space in downtown Richmond, VA, equipped with a full wood shop and a community of like‑minded makers.

No matter the size of the project, each piece is crafted to be a one-of-a-kind product that’s built to endure a lifetime of use. A product is final when it’s one he would be proud to own. These values allow Derek to continuously strive to learn and grow as a maker, delivering the highest quality product he’s capable of creating.

Derek Drocy started with a desire to create quality work for his own home and loves doing the same for his customers.
