Custom Solid Wood Furniture
Guy is an artisan furniture maker specializing in one of a
kind custom solid wood furniture.
30 years of working with wood has allowed Guy to develop an
understanding of how wood behaves and the artistic sense to
capture and work with the beauty of the grain in each piece
of wood he uses.
Often Guy will use reclaimed lumber and prefers old growth wood for the
richness of color and texture. Reclaimed lumber is wood that usually
comes from buildings such as barns that are being torn down.
This is eco -friendly as no new trees are harvested for this
type of wood. This wood may be over a 100 years old.
He tries to use local sourced Ontario lumber for the custom furniture
that he makes. The reclaimed lumber is often from old growth forest and
provides a richness of color and texture that can not be matched by
modern regrowth of the forests.
Working with this type of wood for his solid wood tables and
furniture such as dressers and cabinets has its pitfalls.
Each piece of wood has to be carefully selected for fit and
structural integrity. Knots and holes from previous
joinery can be incorporated into the overall design to create
a piece with more character and history than is possible with modern
Guy uses traditional wood working construction techniques that date
back for centuries. Each piece is truely solid
and is of heirloom quality. This
is hand crafted one of a kind work. There are no multiples or
factory production. It is a one person shop where the master-craftsman
does every step of your hand crafted custom piece of furniture.
Look through the galleries to see some of the work that Guy has done
