My full time operation of Board & Bench is the culmination of a lifelong interest and hobby in woodworking coupled with twenty years’ experience and fascination with the design side of men’s clothing. The stripes customers loved on the shirts and socks I designed flow across the surface of the cutting boards and butcher blocks I create now.
My signature product is a line of cutting boards, all made by combining woods of various types and colours. I also design and make functional and decorative items like serving trays and candle holders. I design and make everything that you see in the photos, and I will make everything to be sold in my booth with part time help.
Where you’ll see me and my work
I sell my work at large craft shows like One of a Kind in Toronto, Originals/Signatures in Ottawa, and at the large outdoor summer shows in Kew Beach, Toronto; Cobourg; Haliburton; Gravenhurst; and Cabbagetown in Toronto. I finish off the outdoor season in Vineland on the Niagara Peninsula at Thanksgiving.
Some of Canada’s finest gift and craft shops carry my work: Cornerstone in Kingston, Village Studios in Stratford, The Boutique in Hamilton, The Main Course & Arts on Queen in Toronto, Wild Elements in Lunenburg, Morrison House in Oakville, and many more across the country.
