About Us

Founded in 2018 by John Retka, Clearwater Creek Customs’ main purpose is to provide quality products at an affordable price. We pride ourselves on the ability to create exactly what our customer envisions. If we do not exceed your expectations, we haven’t done a good enough job seeing your vision.

At Clearwater Creek Customs, we truly put our customers first. We welcome all questions and inquiries and take a consultative approach to our business, not a sales one. With us, you determine how involved you want to be in a project. You can simply give us an idea and step back, or you can be involved with every step. The choice is entirely up to you.

We are also very price conscious. Our mission is to create something that will last, and not do so with profit in mind, but out of a love and genuine respect for our craft. We want our customers to enjoy our pieces in their homes, not worry about how to pay for them. That’s the CCC difference.

About John

John’s love of woodworking began early in life. He often would watch his father and his friend’s complete projects on the weekends. After college, the urge to create was reignited. What started as simply fixing things around the house has turned into a true love of woodworking. Always up for a challenge, he takes every project head on and puts all that he has into it. Along with woodworking, he has a love for community and family. He is married to his college sweetheart and is the proud dad of three incredible children.
