Making is a lot of fun. We love getting out into the bush and bringing in wood. We make everything by hand in our workshop near Walter's Falls, Ontario. Most of the wood we use is from our 25 acre bush lot. Some trees have fallen from wind and storm damage and some we sustainably harvest to keep our trails clear. We also use reclaimed wood when we can. We finish our goods with natural beeswax polish and pure Tung oil, keeping things all natural.  Darren does the chainsaw work, and I (Jess) mainly use the Band saws, Sanders and Drill press. There's something totally satisfying about making things by hand.
