We just completed this beautiful figured maple knife box for a customer, the knife was custom made by Douglas Knives .

We ‘popped the grain’ on the figured maple with a a coat of shellac and then sanding it back off.

Carolina’s box of goodness

Nice Perk for today.

We have been commissioned to make several display stands for Carolina’s Box of Goodness. Carolina very kindly sent us one of her gift boxes so we could make sure the Artisan brownies fit just right.

I hope they last that long, they look delicious!Carolina's box of goodness Carolina's box of goodness

Farewell to a great friend

This post has been a while coming, just after our friend Robert died our son was caught up in a machine at work and lost part of his thumb, so things have been a little hectic around here for the last couple months or so.

Robert was my mothers partner , they were only together a couple of years before he died of cancer but in that time we got to be darn good friends. We spent a fair amount of our time bitching about government , taxes and the normal things people bitch about.

But we spent most of our time talking woodworking. Robert’s shop was small, maybe 6 feet x 8 feet or so, but he had so much packed into that tiny space and made use of every square inch.

Small Shop

He built toys, furniture, picture frames etc. for his grand children, relatives and the occasional charity out of whatever scrap wood he could salvage or was given to him. Typical woodworker right? OK he did buy wood but you get the idea 🙂

We were given the honour of building his burial urn, we only had about 5 days to get this together and I must admit it was a tough job to complete in such a short time and emotions were running a little high.

We designed and built two boxes. The outside box is a keepsake box that will be given to his daughters with a few of his things in it.

Thanks to Lee Valley for expediting the shipping on the hardware for this, it arrived with time to spare. Much Like us Robert was a huge fan of Lee Valley his wish list was always full of Lee Valley items at Holiday times.

The Maple , ebony and Andiroba (Mahogany)  came from The Wood Source another favourite spot.

Robert was a big Greene and Greene fan so we added some of those elements to the Keepsake box; protruding finger joints, ebony plugs to names a couple.

The inside box was the burial urn Robert was interred in.  It is made from maple to reflect his love of Canada, the ebony keys and the mahogany cross we added to blend with the keepsake box.

Peruvian walnut keepsake box

This is a Peruvian walnut keepsake box we built for a charity auction for St. John Anglican Church in Smiths Falls, Ontario

About 1/3 of the money raised goes to community outreach programs , most of which goes to food banks, school food programs and other programs to feed people who require it.

The rest goes to the church for expenses as well as making sure the community organizations that meet in the hall have what is required.

They do a great job in the community and we have supported them in many ways over the years and always enjoyed it.

Price: $225.00
