Who are we?
We are Laurie and Douglas Dingman. Our small family-owned design shop is located in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. The shop is equipped with a state of the art CNC Router and some very sophisticated 3-D design software that helps us produce beautiful wood carvings and stunning 3-d lithophanes.
We have a tremendous amount of versatility in what we can produce. Everything from 4 x 8 foot panels to 3 x 4 inch lithophanes. Our carving bits can be as large as an 1.5 inches for removing lots of wood quickly, down to as small as 40/1000's of an inch for very fine detailed carving in the lithophanes.
Although we have both had a careers in another industry for the past 30 years, we have always dreamed of owning our own shop to give life to our creative passions.
Laurie is an avid craft worker. She paints graphics, funky birdhouses and beautiful scenes; loves to scrapbook and is always creating a new project of some kind for family and friends.
I've always had a love for woodworking. I’ve made furniture, built decks and even house additions. For 30 years I’ve always had a pretty well equipped small shop in my house or garage. Over the years they have gotten progressively bigger.
Now I have my 1500 square foot dream shop.
We enjoy developing our own designs or helping our clients customize a piece that we can create for them on our CNC Router and hand finish to perfection.
We formed Frostback Custom Design to fulfill our dream.
We hope you’ll give us serious consideration when you are shopping for some one-of-a-kind gifts or something to enhance your own home, moutain retreat or vacation home. We put a lot of care and thought into what we produce. I'm sure we can make something that you'll love as much as we love making it.
We think all of our pieces have the potential to become family heirlooms.
Try us, you won't be disappointed.
