Deej in the studio

Hello. I’m DJ Johnson…my good friends call me Deej (rhymes with siege).


I have found that being free to create whatever I want just using my hands and imagination is a great alternative to working on the computer. Whether painting, glass etching, candle-making, molding, crafting, woodworking, or metal fabricating, …no matter what it is as long as I’m working with my hands to make my ideas come to life is truly a blessing.

The DEEJ DOES site is a platform to share a variety of projects executed by DJ Johnson, aka Deej. Deej, with an eye and passion for all things do-it-yourselfing, crafting, hobbying, repurposing, upcycling, and refurbishing, will share projects he’s done as well as provide easy-to-follow tutorials that you can be inspired to try out yourself.

An exciting upcoming feature on the site, DEEJ DOES…, a day-in-the-gloves video diary series where Deej tackles a variety of unfamiliar D-I-Y projects, consults an expert and records the process, revealing the finished project and providing handy tips and hindsight analysis to help others who may need to tackle a similar project.
