When we opened the new location of our boutique, Gayle's Fashions, we called upon Rob to custom build a live edge front counter. We have been using and loving it ever since. The customers are enjoying it as well! ~Gayle
We were struggling with how to finish our bar top so that it would be durable and still match with the rest of our house. Rob went above and beyond coming to our house, bringing us samples and making sure it was what we wanted. The end result was more than we could have asked for because of the experience, artistic care and quality that Rob provides. We will be getting him to finish more projects for us in the future. ~ Caitlin
We used Rob for quite a few pieces of furniture at our home. He delivered as asked and then some. His craftsmanship is top notch. We now have various pieces that we will proudly pass from one generation to the next. We will recommend him for anyone looking for timeless furniture with loads of character ~ Lienkie
Rob does amazing work! Very creative and very reliable. ~ Rosanne Doiron
I’ve admired Rob’s work for years and was thrilled to have him build a reclaimed solid wood mantle and floating shelves in my living room. These were extra special as they were made from a post from the old high school I graduated from and also taught at. Rob was great to work with and provided high quality craftsmanship and local history to our home. ~ Kama Money Jones www.ethigalblog.com
Rob’s craftsmanship is impeccable. If you just let him run with an idea, his creativity will not disappoint. ~Susan
Rob is amazing! He worked with me to design and build a kitchen island that features a live edge counter top, which fits my needs to a T. His fine craftsmanship and creativity made him the perfect choice for what I wanted, and I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with the results! ~ Nancy Wilmot
Rob helped us create a custom table for our great room. I wanted to incorporate an old tree that fell in our yard into a modern centrepiece for our new kitchen. He worked with our vision and created just that! Our table is modern, durable and beautiful! I hope to have more pieces made by him in the future! ~ Cecile
Rob built three custom pieces for our condo at Mt. Washington. We started with a dining room table, and then a coffee table that is the centre piece for our living room. Our social life up on the mountain revolves around those two tables. From heavy use, they have developed a lovely patina that adds more and more character each year. For our bedroom Rob built a unique headboard from salvaged wood that fits right into a gap behind the bed.
All three pieces contain wood that has a history and tells a story. The top of dining room table is made from joists pulled from a building designed by Francis Rattenbury, the architect behind the BC Parliament buildings and the Empress Hotel. For the headboard Rob collected some of the pieces from the beaches in Tofino, the year after the Tsunami in Japan. On a few of them you can still see Japanese text.
Working with Rob was a pleasure. He listened to our needs, took careful measurements, and then built the pieces specifically for the space they would occupy. His furniture is both beautiful and functional. It adds warmth to our mountain home that contrasts perfectly with the rugged scenery outside.’~ Gene
