Custom woodworking

Wood - the original material for tools and construction - is still the standard for quality. Wooden desks, tables, chairs, signs, and all manner of objects always stand out for their character and beauty. Wood feels warm. Wood gives a welcoming character to our environment, be it in nature or in our homes.

Modern computer-aided tools make the design of beautiful wooden objects more accessible. Modern woodworking machinery allows the creation and craftsmanship of wooden objects which more people can afford. Beauty is no longer reserved for the rich.

CNC carved signs are a specialty. From simple designs on melamine to 3D relief carvings, your imagination is the only fundamental limit. LED illumination or feature accents can make your design stand out in all conditions. Contact me to discuss your needs!

For your board gaming needs, I will work with you to design and build the perfect table for your favourite games. Toppers, cup holders, drawers, card slots, chip trays, LED lighting are all avaiable in any combination. Contact me and we will create a table that will be the centrepiece of your gaming life.

I use TurboCAD and Vectric VCarve to assist in design. In the shop I use a 16″ Hammer Jointer/Planer, a 14″ Hammer bandsaw, a Makita tracksaw, and a CanCam CNC Router to shape fine woods. I prefer maple and walnut, but also use some exotic woods for character. Most of my wood is from KJP Select Hardwoods. Finishing is by hand, assisted by a custom designed and built vacuum table and assembly table. I prefer Livos Natural Oil and Rubio Monocoat. My hand tools are primarly from Lie Nielsen and Lee Valley.

Bring your ideas for unique furniture, signs, or other objects and I will work with you to achieve a work of art which will bring you a lifetime of functional pleasure. My workshop is in Horton Township, near Renfrew Ontario Canada.
