Hello and welcome to Deuce’s Furniture. I’m so glad you’re here.
I am the owner, David Morgan, but you can call me “Deuce.” I am also known as “D2” to those in my Deaf community.
Yes, I am Deaf. Born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, I became Deaf after contracting meningitis at the age of 7 months. I am proud to be Deaf – Deaf is my normal!
Moving a lot during my formative years, Jonesboro will forever be considered my home. I always looked forward to spending summers in Jonesboro, working alongside my grandfather in his painting business. This experience was the start of my interest and appreciation for skilled handiwork.
Attending high school in Roanoke, Virginia, I credit these years as the most influential. The reason is two-fold. I became more greatly involved in the Deaf community, providing me with a true insight and understanding of the Deaf culture. I also began developing my passion for all things handcrafted by enrolling in a number of technical courses offered in high school. Albeit auto repair, welding or mechanics, each should be considered an art form. With the use of your hands and the right tools, you can hone a skill set adaptable to a variety of handiwork trades.
I attended Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the world’s only university specifically designed to teach the deaf and hard of hearing students. At Gallaudet, not only did I earned a degree in Business Administration, but I also met my then future wife. After graduation, we got married and moved to Faribault, about 50 miles south of Minneapolis.
In Faribault, I enrolled in a carpentry course at South Central College. I also I took several jobs as a carpenter to apply my skills and gain the valuable business experience needed to start my own construction company. Much to my dismay, I experienced discrimination due to my deafness. I became very conflicted with my passion, my identity as Deaf and my self-esteem. Feeling defeated, I reverted to making handcrafted furniture in my garage as a hobby.
Although I enjoyed my hobby, I found myself struggling to transform my passion into a successful business. On May 30, 2015, I had an “aha moment.” This was the start to launch an e-commerce business, now known as DeucesFurniture.com.
Deuce's Furniture provides an online platform for craftsmen across the country to sell their high quality, handmade furniture designs. I believe handcrafted furniture is a unique work of art, as each piece is designed with very specific characteristics and the integrity to last a lifetime.
