Built as a solar kiln to save the trees from the Fraser Valley green waste dumps, this kiln resembles a gambrel style barn to fit in the area. It is made from recycled glulam beams cut and resawn to 8”x 8” notched and bolted frame capable of withstanding severe BC weather.
From our retired Thetis Island Ferry houseboat, “The Ethel Hunter” to our 100+ yr old steam donkey bbq stand, “The Hungry Bear Stand” ... we put the same passion into our Live Edge Wood Slabs.

In this type of wood there is a map of designs, so we added a world of colour to the finishing
Double cedar arched door I carved of bear on waterfall catching fish!

Rounding the straight cut ends and creating a carved 'live edge' to resemble live edge on the end cuts all the way around. also the dark seam in middle is a large fill on the underside.
