Berlin Welcomes Its Newest Creative Business – Cuts of Wood


Dave Cavedon, the owner of Cuts of Wood, recently celebrated a ribbon cutting at his Berlin location. Cuts of Wood is a provider of unique and custom wood creations that has been in business since October 2016. Cuts of Wood joins the Berlin Driving School, Sigmawear, Happy Garden, and Anna’s Tailor Shop at 202 New Britain Road.

Dave has been a lifelong artisan who has always had a love of wood. After retiring as a police officer in West Hartford, he transformed woodworking from a hobby into an amazing and creative venture. The business started with wooden ornaments but now includes custom cutting boards, address plaques, business card holders, and so much more.

“Cuts of Wood is a great addition to the creative economy we see growing in Berlin. I look forward to seeing Dave be successful here in town”, added Mayor Mark Kaczynski.

Dave is looking to connect with schools, youth organizations, sports teams, small and large businesses as well as residents of Central Connecticut. He has already connected with a local brewery and cancer charity organizations to fulfill their desires for wooden creations. All products can be customized and if you have a dream, Dave can help bring it to life. He works with wood, ceramic tile, acrylics, plastics, flat glass, and leather!

Dave is a long-time resident of Berlin and is proud to be able to bring the business to life in his hometown. More details and a view of some of their products can be found online at Also be sure to find their booth at the upcoming Berlin Fair (in the Craft Building)!
