My WORK

Some of my earliest memories take place in the basement of my grandfather’s farmhouse learning to design and build intricate wooden projects. Learning from a man whose only formal training in woodworking took place 50 years before I was born gave me a respect for classical techniques and hand tools. Nearly 20 years later, I have adopted modern techniques and training, but the basic joinery skills I learned in that farmhouse basement, continue to set me apart from the run-of-the-mill production woodworker. I specialize in high-end projects and enjoy working for clients with high quality standards. Difficult projects excite me as they allow me to think creatively and showcase the skills I have worked so hard to develop. I don’t believe in in taking shortcuts or sacrificing aesthetics/functionality to save time. You might be able to find someone who will complete your project for a little less money, or a day or two faster, but you won’t find anyone who stands behind their work the way I do.

Stairs


Stair and railing construction and modification is truly our bread and butter. Conventionally stair builders have built their stairs in the shop and had them stained and finished on-site. We don’t mind being unconventional, so we prefer to finish all our stair components in the shop and build the stairs on-site. This allows us to provide our homeowners with the highest quality finish that is fully cured and free of any harmful VOC’s*. It also allows us to provide builders and contractors with a stair system that provides safe access between floors during construction, without the concern of tradespersons damaging the stairs.

*VOC’s refer to volatile organic compounds such as xylene, ethylbenzene and acetates. Many of which are present in traditional wood finishes such as polyurethane and lacquer and continue to off-gas after application for weeks, months or even years depending on site conditions.

Flooring


What truly makes a high-quality flooring installation is the time and energy invested into proper site preparation and layout. We pride ourselves in going the extra mile before a row of hardwood is ever nailed down. By laying out or hardwood installations carefully with lasers we know exactly what size our boards are going to be and how square they will be running when they hit balcony openings, stair headers and doorways. This allows us to adjust our layouts to get the most aesthetic and functional floor installation possible.

"The character and uniqueness is something special."

"I hired Eric to build me a custom piece similar to something I saw online. It was a shelving piece that attaches to the wall. Eric came by and we went over the piece in detail. He took all the measurements needed, and helped with suggestions such as stain colour and space required to fit each accessory. Needless to say the final piece was everything I wanted and more. I absolutely love the shelf. The character and uniqueness is something special. I was referred to Eric from my brother, and I'll most definitely be calling on him again for future projects. Eric is super easy to work with and fair. Thanks again Eric!"

Millwork


Our theory on trim work is quite simple, “good enough, isn’t”. Baseboards should ride tight to the floor regardless of the rolls or depressions often found in mature homes. Inside corners should always be coped tight and outside corners should always be glued and sanded. Door and window casings should be cut tight, glued and sanded. We believe speed on millwork installations should be the result of experience and efficiency rather than a willingness to churn out substandard work.
