"Dining on natural, reclaimed, organically treated, and artfully crafted wood can help us discover our community with all our earth and each other." - Bill Major, artist
Meticulously crafted natural wood products finished with eco-friendly oils.
In our shop, we are part of birthing reclaimed wood into new life for the tables of our homes. Our natural edge cheese boards, placemats, tables, and tea lite candle holders ,crafted from various types of wood, are food safe, rustic, artistic, hand-made, and environmentally healthy. As much as possible, we are
"green Canadian artisans", sourcing locally, using repurposed wood, and finishing with human- friendly products.
Below we take you on a journey, starting at one of our local sawmills where we source our wood. After they are cut by a band saw, we air dry them with the help of fans for up to 4 months. After drying, we sand our products up to 220 grit. We then treat our cheese boards with 10 coats of hemp seed oil and 2 coats of our own hemp seed oil/beeswax mixture and finish our live edge tables and placemats with an eco friendly hard wax /oil called Osmo.

"Bill Major's beautiful wood boards have brought a distinctive rustic elegance to our cheese and charcuterie presentations at the Black Dog here in Bayfield. Their beauty and style is matched only by their hardiness and thoroughly Canadian quality. We love them." ... Kathleen Sloan-McIntosh, co-owner, Black Dog Village Pub and Bistro in Bayfield ON.
"Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Bill and purchasing two of his hand-crafted wood trays. I love the natural and rustic beauty of them and they work perfectly at my home in the countryside of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This is both an excellent quality product and it is such a pleasure to deal with a wood artisan as passionate as Bill. I love this product! I plan on purchasing more as gifts in the future!" ... Charles the Butler; the Marilyn Denis Show, CTV.
