Hello, Danie here. The fearless leader of Legendary Loot Drop. Loot Drop is a passion project born from years of struggling to find just that- passion.
I have always been creative. Drawings lined every square inch of my childhood bedroom walls. Notepads and sketchbooks harnessed the weird wild things that swirled around in my head and demanded to be expelled through the pen in my hand. I have also always been a crafter- a maker of things. To entertain my siblings and I my mother would buy a big bag of pom-poms, googly eyes, and Tacky glue from the local craft store and tell us to go at it. This led to days spent cross stitching, crocheting, knitting, wreath making, sewing, and basically any other handy craft I could get my hands on. So imagine my surprise when I would meet my one true love- woodworking!
Honestly, I cannot remember how this whole woodworking shebang got started. Something about building a printer cart I saw on Pinterest (which never was finished by the way). It probably best began with the purchase of our first 3d printer, which then led to our first Laser CNC, and eventually morphed into a garage full of woodworking equipment and the desire to always be making something new.
Legendary Loot Drop is a culmination of a lot of things. A love of creation, a love of wood working, and a lifetime obsession with gaming. Each piece from LLD is a little bit of my blood, sweat, and tears sent out in the world to hopefully bring joy and spread a little beauty. Maybe even inspire a whole new generation of woodworkers. However, that could just wishful thinking.
It is getting a little easier when I am asked what I do for living. I proudly reply with a simple, “I am a woodworker artisan.” Then wait for the inevitable follow up of having to explain “I make accessories for life-long tabletop gaming nerds like myself.” But, you know what? That sounds pretty good to me.
