Most Distinguished Artisan
Born and raised in British Columbia and now residing in Vernon, B.C., even though Don’s work is known and sold in other countries, Don was probably one of Vernon’s best kept secrets. His products were never displayed in his hometown until just recently. Don has been building these beautiful boxes and other custom orders in the wood shop behind his home since 2000.
Don has brought his own style to the common wood box. By using various types of hardwoods that come from all over the globe. Don is able to take this wood and combine the different wood types to produce a contrast that truly stands out on its own. Putting in that extra effort to produce an eye-catching product will bring out the curiosity in every one of us. You simply will not be able to walk by any of his work with out lifting the lid, or just running your fingers over the smooth warm finish.

About the Artisan
Don likes to keep the natural look of the wood. That means no stain to any of the wood. The finish can be up to 15 coats of oil, hand waxed to bring out the natural beauty and warmth of the wood. This process alone can take up to two weeks or more to complete.
