About us

Trees here in British Columbia, their individual life cycles, varied shapes, the different needle and leaf patterns, the boards theiy yield up to us have always fascinated me.

I have always been interested in which B.C. woods are best for snowshoes, which are best for paddles, which are best for sailing masts, which are best for furniture, and which are best for construction. Most recently whichwoods are inspirational to me for the production of beautiful furniture.

Across the history of wooden furnishings production different species have been appriciated for their individual qualities. Here in B.C. maple, douglas fir, several pines, western birch and cedar supply our furniture making. All these species I use for differeny pieces.

Woods for our creations come from many different sources. We found treasures neatly stacked in the underbrush of small forgotten sawmill sites. Other lumber comes from disused farm builings. One set of heavy one hundred douglas fir framing beams, re-sawed, to beautiful wide plank flooring. The figured splattered and westen maple we use in our furnitue laid sawn and stacked for some fourty years before we literally stumbled upon it.
