GDT builds and designs furniture, millwork and cabinets for clients and Architects in the New York area. 

Our background as furniture and cabinetry makers informs the craft for all of our projects large and small. Palmer studied wood furniture construction starting at a young age with shop classes in Boston to Penland school of crafts in North Carolina. Before studying Architecture Palmer worked in a furniture shop in Brooklyn for 2 years and continues to build all of our work out of the same location in Williamsburg 

At GDT the consideration of joinery, grain orientation and material selection are not seen as novel concepts but rather are second nature and present in our process at every scale .
