Our Story

Welcome to CarPenTree!

I hope you enjoy all the hand-crafted products available on this site. 

I have spent most of my life creating, building, repairing and refinishing with a variety of materials and machines. I grew up with a shop on my family property and spent much of my free time working with tools. Over time, I discovered that working with my own hands and working with wood products was the most meaningful. 

CarPenTree.ca itself, all started with a single saw. When I moved provinces a few years ago, the large collection of tools I grew up with couldn't come with me. I worked at different jobs, but I could never quite shake the connection I have with wood and tools. A well intentioned gift of a band-saw brought my passion for woodworking back into the spotlight, and this has overflowed into a shop full of tools and a car that has to fight to park under cover! 

Today I have turned my passion outward in the hopes of designing and creating distinctive furniture pieces of the highest quality.  I hope you take the time to browse my collection, blog and videos, and find something that connects with you, and that you would love to have in your own home. If you have another idea for a piece of furniture, please let me know. I love to create pieces that are as personal and unique to you, as they are to me. 

I hope to be able to make the perfect piece for you soon. See you around the shop.
