Master of the Shaker box
A timelessly designed product
In addition to Shaker boxes, I make and retail furniture and an assortment of functional items, such as serving boards and candle holders. I offer educational workshops on basic woodworking, how to make Shaker oval boxes, and how to make Shaker stools. I sell the parts as well as kits for people to make their own oval boxes, and host with Rob Cosman (another New Brunswick woodworker) an instructional DVD on how to make oval boxes. Today I sell products all over North America and Japan, and am working on breaking into the Australia and New Zealand markets.
I work with some of the finest woods available, including cherry and birds-eye maple from New Brunswick. Cherry is particularly nice to work with as it bends very well and makes a beautiful box.
I am fortunate to run a business and be successful producing a timelessly designed product. At the end of the day, I'm happy to say I created something that's practical and beautiful.
