Based in Campbell River, BC, we are a family of craftsmen who love what we do. Respectful of the beauty of the materials we work with, we are interested in creating timeless custom furniture with heirloom workmanship. We hope that each piece we create will far outlast us and will be passed down from generation to generation.

We are constantly learning and ever evolving our style and approach to building. Much of the beauty, and a source of pride for us, is in the attention we pay to small details. From the type of joinery we use to the finish we apply, each detail is researched and chosen with longevity in mind. We draw much of our inspiration from each individual piece of wood we work with, as well as the natural environment around us. We are fortunate to live on the west coast where there are trees, mountains, lakes, rivers, and oceans at our doorstep, and our pieces reflect back to these natural elements. Our west coast roots are evident in our projects and are true to who we are as creators.

We genuinely love working with our hands and are passionate about building exceptional pieces. We design, create, and build, in house. Because of this, each piece that goes out the door is built with the same care and attention to detail as the pieces we put in our own homes.

Each piece is designed, sourced, and built in Campbell River, BC. Much of our work is from local materials, highlighting the beautiful array of woods we have available to us.

In his youth, using miles of tape to hold things together, he has advanced to using complex joinery methods that will stand the test of time. His talent for woodworking is accompanied by a propensity towards metalworking. When Mike isn’t creating something, he’s usually flying through the air on his mountain bike.
