About Dave

My life for the past 35 years has been closely aligned with the wilderness of BC through back country skiing our mountains, kayaking our rivers and ocean areas and walking and hiking our forests. The beauty of our province and its many environments has strongly inspired  many of my wood work related projects. Rustic styles of building have always been the most appealing and inspiring to me. 

 My love of woodworking began as a  teenager in the late 70's when I built my first log cabin. By 1994 I had completed the construction of my 3600 square ft lakeside log home in which I live today with my partner Kyra and our daughter Claire.

 My personality compels me to build day in and day out no matter what the situation.

During the 80’s and 90’s my buildings were largely log home and cabins. They were constructed in  many areas of the world including  BC, the NWT, New Zealand, Germany and Japan. During these years I mainly worked for contractors while I learned my trade.

In the late 90’s and into 2000 I developed a big interest in twig  or bent willow style furniture and built many pieces for clients.I went on to give a workshop on how to build  your own twig chair to over 300 individuals mainly through Island Mountain Arts in Wells, BC

Since the mid 90’s I have largely run my own projects building more log homes  and hybrid log/post and beam structures, as well as the full range of conventional carpentry including framing, window and door installation, wood floors, decks, and all associated trim work. In the last 5 years I have been most interested in building post and beam additions and free standing outdoor structures such as arbours and pergolas. Most recently, unique custom furniture has become my passion.

If you are on the verge of planning any building or furniture project and want rustic handmade craftsmanship I am here to help you make it happen. I promise to build it with TLC and attention to details and make the whole experience  a positive one for you, your family or your business.
