Craig Ruding & Chris Wood
ABOUT US
Ruding & Wood is a continuation of a family business. In 1941 Harry S.Ruding opened a cabinet making and refinishing shop in Ocean Grove New Jersey. Charley Wood and his son Dennis began C.H. Wood & Son in 1946  offering carpentry and general woodworking. Following his marriage to Margaret, Charley's daughter, Harry, Charley and Dennis collaborated on many wood working projects throughout their professional careers.

Continuing the tradition today are Craig Ruding, the son of Harry and Chris Wood, the son of Dennis. Both grew up with a love of wood working, fine furniture finishing and craftsmanship.

The work of Ruding & Wood has been featured in several publications notably Martha Stewart Living and New Jersey Design Monthly .
